When is the best time of year to redo a fence? My husband put our fence up 5 years ago. The problem was that it's a 6ft fence and the posts (metposts - not concreted in) were put in every 12 feet. Then we had storms, the garden flooded and now the fence is leaning over badly. The whole thing needed new posts the problem is that since then I've planted up a border. I'm very keen and I've filled the raised bed with cottage garden style plants including geraniums, hebes, salvia, aliums, phlox, naepta walkers low, campanula's, russian sage, asters and penstemons.
I'm worried about losing all my plants. I guess in spring I could dig up all the perennials and put them in pots, the shrubs should be established? There are quite a few bulbs also. Or would late autumn be best when everything is dying back?
