Tips for Winter

Well, winter is here and some think it’s time to hang up the gardening tools until Spring but in fact now is the time to be planning for Spring.

We often forget about plants in winter but there are lots of winter flowering shrubs and trees that will light up those dull days including camellia, many types of magnolias, daphne and rhododendron.  Our daphne is about to burst open and we can not wait for its colour and fragrance to brighten up the days.

Some ideas for planting are:

  • Broad beans, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, celery, garlic, kale, onions, peas, shallots, silverbeet, spinach.
  • Garlic – now is the time to be planting, but you can also plant through into early spring in some places in New Zealand
  • Strawberries can be planted too.  Some say that planting strawberries in New Zealand’s winter temperatures will give you a higher yield in summer. Yummy.

Tips for Autumn

With the cooler nights and morning dews having arrived we know autumn is here, putting one extremely hot season behind us.

Now is the time to refresh those gardens and replant new season’s vegetables, seeds etc to enjoy in autumn and winter.

Some ideas are:

  • Leafy Greens: spinach, silver beet, celery, lettuce.
  • Brassicas: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, pak choy, kale.
  • Salads Crops: lettuce – rocket, mesclun blends, parsley, coriander, chives.
  • Root crops: radish, beetroot, carrots.
