As for general tips, Brett says mulch mulch mulch is the key at this time of year.

“Keep up the water, and make sure you mulch,” Brett said.

“It’s something I believe in, and we always tell everyone after you plant to mulch to reduce evaporation, and suppress the weeds.

“Make sure you keep up the water this Autumn as we may not get a break in rain til June. The great thing is the soil temperatures are going to be a little bit warmer, so it’s a great time to plant, we’ve broken the back of the heatwave.”
