As the vibrant hues of summer give way to the rich, warm tones of autumn, it's the perfect time to enhance your garden's beauty and create an inviting space to enjoy during the cooler months. One of the best ways to achieve this is by planting trees and shrubs that thrive in the autumn season. In this guide, we'll take you through the steps to plant trees this autumn and show you where to find the best trees and shrubs at Elmwood Nursery & Garden Centre.
Planting Trees This Autumn: A Step-by-Step Guide
- Select the Right Tree: The first step in planting a tree this autumn is choosing the right species. Consider factors like your garden's soil type, climate, and available space. At Elmwood, our experienced staff can help you pick the perfect tree for your garden.
- Choose the Location: Once you've selected your tree, find the ideal spot in your garden. Think about the amount of sunlight, wind exposure, and proximity to other plants. Make sure the tree has enough space to grow both above and below ground.
- Prepare the Soil: Dig a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and the same depth. Loosen the soil at the bottom to help the roots establish themselves. If your soil needs improvement, consider adding organic matter like compost.
- Plant with Care: Gently remove the tree from its container and place it in the hole. Be sure the top of the root ball is level with the ground. Fill the hole with soil, pat it down gently, and water thoroughly.
- Mulch and Maintenance: Apply a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water your newly planted tree regularly during the first year, and watch it grow into a stunning addition to your autumn garden.
