Harvest the last of your summer crops to make way for new plantings of delicious winter vegies
WHAT TO PLANT
Try brassicas (broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and turnips), peas, onions, spinach, radish, sorrel and endive. Broad beans don’t crop until spring but seeds are planted from autumn. and if you’ve struggled to grow coriander and rocket, try sowing seeds again now when cooler conditions are more to their liking.
Since australian climates range from tropical in the north to the cold in the south, where you live has a critical effect on what you plant and when. Some vegies, such as onions and brussels sprouts, need a chilly winter to succeed; others, such as broccoli, are not as fussy. Choose varieties that suit your local area, buying seedlings from farmers’ markets or seeking advice at your garden centre.
