A long discussion on which Hans also has his vision: when is the best time to plant? In his view, there is only one correct answer to this question: late summer and early autumn. Why? He explains that in this blog.
He deduces this answer from the old gardener's proverb: "What you plant in the spring can grow, but what you plant in the fall must grow".
Hans thinks it is important to reiterate the advantages of late planting. The advantages certainly outweigh the disadvantages.
Of course, there can be no only benefits associated with planting in early fall. At this time of the year there can be a lot of precipitation,
If you know in advance which parts of the garden often remain wet, it is important not to plant here after September. The soil is then heavy and wet, which does not promote the growth of the plant and in combination with. frost can be fatal to the plant. If this is the case, it is better to wait until spring to plant with these pieces of garden.
In addition, there are a number of plants that are generally better off planting in the spring. About 5% of all plants are not suitable for planting in the fall.
There are a number of measures you can take to protect the plants against the (sometimes violent) weather conditions in autumn and winter.
Plants are in bloom in the summer months. So now is the perfect time to orientate yourself on new plants for your garden so that the planting can start around September. Need advice? Then please contact Hans.
