Autumn Is the Time to Plant

Autumn is the time to plant!!
As I’m writing this blog I can already hear the mumblings “here we go, a salesman trying to drum up some business”.
Most people think that spring is the best time to plant but its not.  There is no right or wrong time to plant in the warm temperate, subtropical and tropical areas of Australia but the best time to plant is autumn as I’ll show you below.
Compare the conditions in spring, when most gardeners plant and autumn when there is not much planting done.
