Autumn Gardening Tips

As the garden begins to pack up for a Winter rest, gardeners can be tempted by the cooler weather also to take a break. Despite the urge to curl up with a blanket and a book, Autumn is, in fact, the best month to get your preparation done for a bountiful Spring garden.

As the weather starts to cool into Autumn, the soil actually retains the warmth from the Summer months making it one of the better times throughout the year to plant and transplant. Your plants will have enough time to establish themselves before winter dormancy without the risk of heat stress.

There are some Autumn sown vegetables and herbs suited to cold climate areas.

• Kale
• Leek
• Silverbeet
• Cabbage
• Radish
• Swede
• Beetroot
• Broccoli
• Onion
• Carrot
• Cauliflower
• Spinach
• Turnip
• Brussel sprouts
• Peas
• Beans
• Garlic
• Lettuce
• Coriander
• Thyme
• Sage
• Chives

These can all be sown over the Autumn months. Ideally, grow these in an area where you can protect them from heavy frosts.

Make sure you check the correct way to split the plant that you have (methods are different depending on the growth form that the plant takes).

If you have plants that need dividing, this is the perfect opportunity. Many clumping genus’ plants such as those listed below can also be split to give you multiple plants.

• Hellebores
• Alchemillas
• Veronica
• Agapanthus
• Hostas
• Iris
