The soil is warm, the nights are a little cooler, and these few weeks will set up key winter and spring crops. So if your plot is ready to go, best get cracking. The bonus: it’s one of the loveliest times of year for gardening.
Here are some plants you can get in the ground now:
- Broad beans
- Broccoli seedlings
- Brussels sprouts seedlings
- Cabbage seedlings
- Cauliflower seedlings
- Onions (brown)
- Pak choy
- Silver beet or rainbow chard
- Spring onion
If you haven’t already sown seeds for brassica (cabbage family), it’s possibly a little late, so seedlings are the best option.
If you’re willing to risk a random frost over winter, you can also sow peas now.
