Seeds to Sow in Summer

January 12, 2018

While Summer in the Barossa is quite unrelenting, there are still a few hardy plants that can be added to your veggie patch at this time of year to take advantage of the warm months still ahead of us. This is the time of year to make sure your existing veggies are well fed too, adding a seaweed emulsion or liquid fertiliser will really help keep up the growth of your plants. And as an extra tip, I always water first thing in the morning, a deep watering a couple of times a week is far more beneficial than a quick water everyday.

Here are some choices of what you can add to your garden right now…

  1. Eggplant
  2. Zucchini
  3. Capsicum
  4. Cucumber
  5. Tomatoes
  6. Watermelon
  7. Rockmelon
  8. Lettuces (if you have a cooler spot in the garden)
