Things to Sow in the Garden Now - September

Posted on

September is a great time to sow tomatoespeppers and eggplant. These crops require a long growing season, and heat to germinate, we use a heat pad to keep the soil temperature stable at around 18-20⁰C. This can also be done near the woodstove or in your hot water cupboard.  Remember to bring your seeds out into the light as soon as they germinate.

Don't forget about all the leafy greens and Brassicas as these can all be sown now too, try our Silverbeet Fordhook GiantChard RainbowBroccoli De Cicco & Broccoli Purple SproutingBroccoli Raab Spring RapiniArugula WildCress Land, Rocket, MizunaRed Coral MizunaTat Soi and Lettuces Tree, Speckled, Odell’s, Mignonette, St Vincent and Lollo Rossa. 
Companion flowers are a must in my opnion! You can get underway now or in the next few months Aquilegia Grandmother’s Garden, Dahlias Showpiece Surprise, Evening Primrose, Dianthus Clove Pink, Statice Sea Lavender, Calendula Orange, Echinacea, Lupin Blue, Sweet Williams and Poppies. So many options, some perennial and some annual so make sure you choose the ones that suit your garden best.

Our Website is where to find the most up to date information on what we have available at all times during the year.
