Averil Milligan, Head Gardener, remarks: “Plants respond to triggers, things like changes in daylight length and temperature send signals to the plant to change growth habits.
“Autumn is a fabulous time to move plants when the soil is still warm and the growing season is closing down.
“Plants get a chance to settle down with as little stress as possible and will grow on without the check next spring’.
