Well it’s getting cold but at least the sun’s out and the ground is starting to dry up after all that rain. Winter in Sydney does not mean time to stop gardening. So what to plant?
If you’ve got the room and you haven’t yet you should get your garlic and broad beans in as soon as you can.
It’s also time to start planting your brassica’s. That means cabbage, kale, broccoli and cauliflower. Keep going with leafy greens (salads and Asian greens) or replant if that recent hail destroyed what you had. Carrots and most herbs can be grown can be grown all year round in Sydney.
If you’ve got a bit of space and are looking for a low maintenance edible, have a try at growing Jerusalem Artichoke. In the right sunny spot these will put on a great show of sunflower like flowers (same family) and you can treat them like perennials by simply leaving a few tubers in the ground at harvest time. If you’re keen, now’s the time to plant them.
As ever, if you need some help, give us a call or leave a comment/question below.
