When you get plants into the ground in Autumn, you’re giving them plenty of time to establish a good strong root system before summer hits. Well-established plants are more able to cope with the heat and stress of summer. It’s also a great time for planting because the air temperature is cooler but soils are still warm so plants can focus on creating a good, sturdy root-system.
Carefully position the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, ensuring that you plant it at the same depth as it was in the original container. Gently but firmly compress the soil around the plant and water in well with Seasol. It promotes strong healthy roots and increases the plants tolerance to heat, drought, frost, pest and disease.
