We’ve made it into Summer, and somewhat surprisingly water restrictions have been lowered and we are still having sporadic rain! This is wonderful for our gardens. As many of us take holidays over the festive season, it’s a great time to get stuck into the garden as a relaxing break, or to get the kids involved. Why not give family and friends edible or drought-resistant plants, seeds or succulents as meaningful Christmas gifts? It can also be fun to give children a plant or garden bed to take care of over the holidays.
Here’s this month’s plant list:
Amaranth, Climbing beans, Beetroot, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Butternut, Cabbage, Carrots, Chard/Spinach, Chinese cabbage, Chives, Chilli pepper, Cucumber, Kale, Kholrabi, Ginger, Globe artichoke, Leek, Lettuce, Potato, Pumpkin, Radish, Rhubarb, Tomato, Watercress, Zucchini
Here’s a list of drought-resistant plants that you could invest in for your garden if you’re not growing food.
Happy gardening, and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!
