Yay! Finally, winter is here!

We are seeing a late winter finally arriving here in Perth. But some of the plants are already thinking its spring, It’s hard to tell exactly what will succeed in your garden. One factor is location, if you’re along the coast its warm nights with harsh winds to contend with or if you’re further inland you might see frost, but frost means you will have more success with Brassicas!

Let’s see how the weather goes…

If August is seeing some warm days you can feel free to start planting some of your spring seeds in the final weeks of the month, but if we are still experiencing cold nights and days, hold off until September.
