Summer is rolling in and we can already smell the sun, get your sunscreen out and hit the beach, but not before planting out your summer crops! Remember the key to summer success in the garden is:

  • Good Soil
  • Shade Cloth
  • Good watering system (drip system)
  • Mulch Mulch Mulch! (lupin for veggie garden woodchips for the rest)

Seedlings are the go over summer its very difficult to get good results out of seed sewing in the summer months, so you only have a few more weeks where this method will be viable.

New vegetable garden can still be out in until around early / mid December, just keep the watering up and make sure they are shaded on days 30 degrees or more.
