Autumn planting guide

Lifestyle — Posted 18/03/14

The rewards may take longer, but the results are just as delicious.

The autumn planting season is colourful and varied, from dark leafy silverbeet to classic winter stew-fillers like turnips and swedes.

While we’re still harvesting the last of our summer fruits and vegetables like zucchinis, tomatoes, fennel and corn, get a head start on your winter yield by turning your attention to the autumn veggie patch.

The cooler weather makes it a great time for plants to establish their root systems and while it doesn’t provide the speedy gratification of a spring garden, the taste of homegrown veggies like cauliflower, broccoli and kohlrabi won’t disappoint.
