VegetablesAutumn is upon us and with that, new seasonal fruit and veggies. It’s time to start planting root vegetables such as beetroot, parsnips, carrots, turnips, swedes, plus some other tasty treats like coriander, Asian greens and onions.

Remember if planting from seed you need to plant six weeks earlier than seedlings, or according to the supplier’s instructions.

It’s also a great time of year to start planting native plants and flowers to help provide habitat and food sources for wildlife and insects. Wildflowers are a great way to attract bees to your garden, which then help with the pollination of your vegetable plants.
