Autumn garden task list

With milder temperatures, Autumn is a great time of year for gardening in Brisbane!

Follow this Autumn gardening advice from our Horticulturalist team to keep your garden flourishing this year.

  1. Trim the hedges before the onset of winter to keep them compact and bushy from ground level.
  2. Spray your lawn weeds now. Aerate the lawn and scatter lime lightly over it. Rejuvenate lawns with an autumn feeding to ready them for winter weather.
  3. Check for borer damage on all deciduous trees, paying attention to the trunk at soil level. It‘s easier to check when trees are dormant and bare.
  4. Make planting holes between the roots of large trees and insert small plants with tiny root systems that establish themselves readily. Bromeliads thrive under trees.
  5. Compost fallen leaves regularly, otherwise they will smother your plants and grass.
  6. If you have cymbidium orchids, they should be placed in full sunshine to encourage good flower spikes during winter and spring.
  7. Divide perennials. Lift them from the soil, divide at the root and replant into well-conditioned soil.
  8. March and April are big vegetable planting months in SE Qld. Try tomatoes, capsicums and eggplants; lettuce; radish; beetroot and silverbeet; beans; cucumber and zucchini; cabbage, broccoli; turnip, onion and garlic.
  9. Regularly removing spent flowers from annuals directs energy into producing more flowers.
  10. Propagate Frangipani cuttings, letting them dry for a few days prior to planting.
