After another dry and warm spring in much of Queensland, gardeners are looking forward to the arrival of the wet, and hope that it will arrive early and bring consistent and regular rainfall.
With the rains comes the strong, lush and often colourful growth, which it is hard to achieve even with constant irrigation.
The arrival of the rains in summer signals the ideal time to transplant and to propagate plants from seed, cuttings and division. Rains are generally accompanied by increased humidity, cloud cover and less extreme temperatures. It can also be a much more pleasant time to work in the garden with the soft moist soil making it easier to pull weeds, dig up plants and prepare beds for planting.
