One last autumn planting session before it gets cold!
Generally, trees, shrubs and roses can be planted throughout the year – including baking hot summers – provided the ground is frost-free and temperatures are above 0°C. This goes for potted plants as well as bare root plants (no root balls or earth stuck to the root). However, planting in summer means you will have to water the plants several times a day to prevent them from drying out. For this reason, autumn planting in October or November is generally easiest as plants remain well-rooted until spring, sprout wonderfully and have enough time to store moisture. Exception: Peach trees and apricot trees are best planted in spring.
