Are you thinking about planting a winter vegetable garden? More people gardening and growing food is one of the good things that has come from the COVID 19 pandemic.
To succeed make sure you follow these tips:
Tip 1. Plant seeds and seedlings that grow in the cold weather.
Things like peas, spinach, brassicas (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale), leeks, herbs, lettuce, onions, turnips, beetroot should all grow well in winter.
Tip 2. Prepare your soil well
Use a good quality organic compost to add organic matter and a well balanced organic fertiliser to build soil that drains well and to feed your plants. Here is more information about what makes up a healthy soil.
Tip 3. Don’t forget to water your winter vegetables if we have a dry season
Check the soil regularly and make sure that it is not too dry. Even though these are ‘winter vegetables’ they can dry out if the autumn and winter rains don’t come as expected.
