It’s September, the beginning of spring, the time of new life and renewal! The weather is starting to warm up this month.

In Darwin the weather is sunny, and it’s still the dry season but the weather is becoming hotter and more humid.

This month is the last chance to plant bare rooted deciduous trees and shrubs, as they need time to establish before the summer heat arrives. Container grown ones with well-developed roots can be planted right through spring.
