There are times of the year when it’s better for planting out new trees, shrubs and perennials.

Sometimes though, we just have to have something what we see in a nursery,garden centre, plant collector's fair or a friend gives us a plant or two.

So how does this plant cope?

Should you plant it out in the garden when it’s really hot?

Or should we wait and hope it survives in its pot until cooler weather?

It’s a personal choice as to which plants get watered and which you hope will survive the hot dry conditions that some of us have experienced.

Established trees that are quite large might be alright but younger smaller trees and shrubs definitely will need a bit of assistance.

If you’ve got that specail plant still in a pot, now’s the time to put it into the garden because Autumn is the best time to plant out, and to move plants in the garden.
