Potato lovers need to start sprouting their seed tubers (takes 4 – 6 weeks) for September planting. Take tubers out of packaging and put in a warm dry spot until the shoots are 2-4cm long.
Early crops include……
Asparagus crowns are available to plant now. Find a sunny well drained spot (you may consider raising the bed 10cm or so) and work in plenty of compost and Sheep pellets or Blood n Bone. Harvest in finishes early December.
Beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauli, onions, peas, radish, silverbeet and the ever popular spinach are still available to plant. Lettuces will still grow for early Spring salads! Beware slugs.
