What to plant now…
Globe artichokes, beetroot, broad beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower (be quick), celery, garlic, jerusalem artichokes, kale, kohl rabi, leek, lettuce, onion, peas, potato, radish, silverbeet, spinach, snow peas, spring onions, strawberries, turnips.
Concerned about caterpillars? Interplant dill – these herbs are reputed to be useful in keeping them off your vegies.
Most herbs (with the exception of basil) will do well planted now. Coriander is a great herb to plant now and grow over the cooler months. Consider some flowering annuals.
Things like pansies, violas, nasturtiums, calendula, marigolds etc. will add colour and help with attracting pollinators and confusing pests.
