Vegetable Gardening in Spring
Sow seeds of Radish, Snow Peas & Peas, Turnips and Beetroot in early September. Beans, Carrots, Parsnips, and Sweet Corn are best planted late in September or early October, when the soil temperature has risen. Plant seedlings of Lettuce, Cabbage, Broccoli, Kale, Onions, Shallots and Silver Beet. Plant potatoes. Include a dressing of general fertiliser (Neutrog’s Giganic is ideal) at planting time and lime if it was not applied in winter. Apply Slug & snail bait. Hoe weeds regularly. Provide support for Broad Beans. Apply Mulch & fertiliser to Strawberry beds and Rhubarb.
