As May is the last month of autumn there is plenty to keep busy in the garden. There's plenty of fruit to harvest and new crops to plant in the vege patch! Don't forget get your bulbs in the ground too.
With winter is on its way, there are two main things to do in the vege garden now: clean up the last of the summer and autumn crops and plant some new winter veges including brassicas, leafy greens and herbs. In the fruit garden, the harvest period is coming to a close for pip and stonefruit and the long awaited harvest season is just beginning for feijoas. It's the last chance to get your bulbs in the flower garden before winter to ensure a beautiful show next spring.
Harvest time is from seedling planting to harvest. For seeds, depending on variety, it will take an extra 6-8 weeks from germination to planting.
