What is the best to plant for Spring?
September is the best month to plant trees and shrubs. Not only do they offer colour and scent, but they also attract birds and butterflies to your garden. Good tree options include the paperbark acacia, fever tree, blossom tree and the forest elder. Clivias, commonly known as bush lilies, bring spectacular colour to the shady areas of your garden. Popular shrubs to look out for are felicias, polygalas, carnations, argyranthemums and pelargoniums. Plant climbers as the soil warms up so that new roots are encouraged to grow and establish.
