Today is the winter solstice, no doubt we are all looking forward to warm sunny days and balmy evenings, but one of the best times in Melbourne is now with beautiful crisp mornings and bright sunny days. Get out and marvel at the trees, kick the autumn leaves if they’re still about. Visit a nursery for bare rooted trees and roses. Don’t be put off because the plants all exposed, it just means the plants are dormant so the nursery can sell them cheaper without pots to take up more space. Check out all the fruit varieties available. There are lots of multi graft options which means you can get multiple fruit on one tree, perfect for small spaces.
