Can I plant my Tibouchina in nsw in autumn

Hi Margaret,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yes Tibouchina is a common tree that thrives in the temperate climate. Autumn is the best time to transplant trees, as the temperature is cooler, but the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth and allow your plants to establish faster. 
I suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive. 


Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
