September marks the beginning of the autumn planting season. The soil is still warm, providing faster root growth — giving plants a head start on next year’s growth. While it is possible to plant trees and shrubs in the heat of summer, it is often easier on the plant if you wait until the temperatures cool somewhat in September. By next summer, they will have a more established root system than those planted in spring. This means better drought tolerance and better flowering in the first year. Also, the shorter days and mild temperatures in fall mean lower stress on new plants.
