Spring planting

spring planting basil herbsHas anyone sowed their spring seeds yet? I have been researching on what vegetables to plant for spring, and these are my favourite picks (for Sydney / Coastal area in NSW)

Vegetables & herbs include; Broccoli, beetroot, cucumber, capsicum, cabbage, tomato, lettuce, parsley, basil, coriander, chives, dill, and thyme.

I love having herbs all year round, as it is so much more cost effective and its great having them on hand to use as required. I make pesto my basil bush grows out of control, and use my parsley for green juices.

If your garden is a big success also, you can always pre-cook some vegetables, and then freeze them so you have them on hand all year round.

Your local garden centre, or even Bunnings, would be able to help you get all the requirements you need and will even give you tips on what to plant next to each & what not to!
