September Planting Guide

September Planting Guide

YAY, Spring is here. I love this time of year and for any gardener it is the best motivator ever. The vegetable planting guide is packed full of possibilities as to what to plant.

Planning your vegetable garden is essential, think about how many plants you will need and what your favourite veggies are. A small basic garden should have the following; at least 4 tomato plants, 2 zucchini, 1 cucumber, 1 pumpkin, 1 watermelon, 10 corn, 4 – 6 beans, 2 – 3 peas/snowpeas, 2 capsicums/peppers, 2 eggplant and as many leafy greens you can fit in like silverbeet, kale, collards, lettuce, asian greens.

Herbs are easy to get started at this time of year as they naturally want to burst out to meet the suns warmer rays. I always have plenty of parsley, spring onions (shallots), oregano, thyme, rosemary and plenty of basil.

For those in tropical and subtropical areas make sure you get your mulch down when planting to keep those weeds down. Those down south you still have a bit of time before the mulch needs to go down.

TIP: For cooler climates peel back the mulch when planting seeds and let the soil heat up from the sun. Once the seeds have sprouted and started to grow, spread the mulch back around the seedling.

  2. Eh.. I had good intentions to get into the garden, but didn’t get there. You have inspired me to try growing watermelon this year though… one of my favs! I have tried growing zucchini a few times and get the flowers and then nothing… any tips?

  3. Great post! Thanks for sharing these tips!
