Autumn planting guide

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.
