A to Z Services Vegetable Gardens made easy

Growing your own vegetables has never been more popular. Even if you don’t have a lot of space, you can still grow a clutch of your favourite varieties, as long as you can supply their basic needs. You won’t have to wait long – many take only six weeks from seed to harvest!

What do I plant, and when?

Not all vegetables can be grown all year round. Some prefer the cooler months, while others like it warm, and a few don’t mind the in-between. They can be loosely grouped according to their growing season. It’s recommended you grow vegetables during the optimum season, otherwise you could end up with a disappointing harvest.

- Cool-season vegetables grow best when temperatures are between 10-20°C or even cooler. They include broad beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, onion, peas, spinach and turnip, and should be sown during the cooler months of the year.

- Intermediate-season vegetables grow best between temperatures of 15-25°C. This group includes beetroot, cabbage, carrot, celery, leek, lettuce, parsnip, radish and silverbeet. It’s important to sow them at the correct time of the year for your climate because they tend to bolt or run to seed if they’re sown too early or too late.

- Warm-season vegetables do best at a temperature of 20°C or above. They grow poorly in cool weather and are susceptible to frost. This group includes green beans, capsicum, eggplant, potato, sweet corn, sweet potato, tomato and all vine crops. Sow in spring or early summer.
