Gardening and Plant FAQs

Q: When is a Good Time to Plant Trees?

Mid to late November is the best time to move all kinds of plants in the garden and is the time when trees are best supplied by professional nurseries.

Whether supplied as a bare root or pot grown specimen, ensuring that your new trees are planted during their dormant phase in early winter will ensure that by the spring the roots have had time to settle and develop suitably.

Beware of moving plants or trees at other times, when the demand for water for growth in the summer will make them susceptible to parching if their roots are disturbed.
