Autumn is a great time to plant most trees, shrubs, vines, and herbaceous perennials. Planting in the fall when temperatures are cooler is less stressful for the plants and for you. Getting your new plants in the ground in September and October gives them enough time to develop roots and adapt to their new surroundings before winter and the next planting season.
Consider indigenous farming. In general, they are easier to care for and will have a better chance of thriving than non-native plants because they are well-suited to the soil, climate, and other growing conditions. An added benefit is their ability to feed and shelter local insects.
