After both record spring and summer rainfalls, the ground is moist to some depth, if not sodden, in most areas. The temperatures
are starting to fall and gardens
are looking lush and green. This
is probably the most pleasant time of year to be out in the garden and plants establish rapidly when transplanted.
To inspire you further, visit some of the many gardens that are open to the public at this time of the year. Some of the most famous ones open to take advantage of the fabulous weather. Have a look at the layout, what plants are used and how they are maintained. Owners or garden helpers are usually on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Continue planting and dividing plants but where possible, put
off major construction, earth-works and paving until the dry season. Storms and heavy rain can still do damage to exposed areas and wash loose topsoil and mulch away.
