Is it too hot to plant new plants and cuttings?
West Sussex, United Kingdom
I have just bought a lot of new plants for the garden and was about to plant them.
However, my friend said I should leave planting for now as the ground is too hard and its too hot for planting which makes a new plant or cutting really struggle. She said I should wait until it rains and is cooler as it puts less strain on the plants?
Is this true or a myth? I am hoping its a myth as I don't really want to wait for ages and am happy to keep watering my new plants until they are established but I just dont' want to be foolish and do the wrong thing as she is a much more experienced gardener.
