Answer: Hi Sandra,

Thank you for contacting us regarding plant selection. 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. To help you select the tree, I would suggest a few options, hope there is one that suits your personal taste. You can look into: Grafted Acacia, Rose, Grevillea, Maple, Cherry, Agonis, Morus, Cercis, Prunu, Betula. The best place to contact is your local nursery and you can check the availability with them as well. You may try half strength of Yates Thrive All Purpose Natural Fish & Seaweed, the dual acting formula feed through both leaves and roots to boost general healthy growth for the entire garden including natives.
