Gardening Calendar

June

In the vege garden

  • Plant beans, bok choi, broad beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, coriander, garlic, kale, leeks, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, silverbeet, snowpeas, spinach, strawberries.
  • Add some pretty white alyssum to help keep the cabbage moths away. You can keep growing tomatoes right through winter.
  • Plant successive crops every few weeks to ensure continuous supply
  • Grow your own mushrooms – you don’t even need a garden to do this, because everything you need comes in a smallish cardboard box!

In the flower garden

  • Plant pansies, violas, primulas, snapdragons, and cornflowers. If you haven’t got your bulbs in yet, then do it now.
  • Plant bare-rooted roses too – they’re great value!

Flowering trees and shrubs

Who said there’s no colour in winter? Daisies, Sunpatiens, camellias, begonias,
cyclamen, cymbidium orchids, poinsettias, gordonias, pansies, violas, abutilons,
euphorbias (snowflake) – it’s blinding! And brighten shade spots with Plectranthus
‘Mona Lavender’ or Schlumbergera.

The proteas, leucadendrons, leucospermums and the Aussie native Telopeas or
waratahs are just beginning to flower now. These spectacular flowering shrubs
are excellent in a sunny, well-drained position.

Things to do

  • Collect fallen leaves for composting.
  • No compost bin? Set one up now. Check out the most effective compost bin
    on the market – the Aerobin. Come in and get Fi to show you how it works
    – you’ll be absolutely hooked.
  • Ease up watering on indoor plants. They don’t drink as much now that the
    weather is cooler.
  • Pop a cyclamen in a pretty pot and enjoy it all through winter. Put it
    outside in the cold at night if you use heating in the home.
  • Plant out new gardens. Winter is a great time to plant trees and shrubs,
    because they can spend a few months establishing a lovely strong root system
    before the onset of the hot weather.
