Getting Ready for Winter Veggies and Herbs
Roleystone Organic Growers is getting started with regular meetings and the April meeting will be a hands on one-sowing vegetable and herbs seeds that love the winter!
For success in growing vegetables and herbs, it is important to time the planting of seeds and seedlings to take advantage of seasonal conditions most favourable for their growth. The marvellous thing about autumn is that it is a good time that you can put in those seeds that thrive in the winter.
Please bring all you need to get your seeds into soil: Seeds, trowel, gloves, punnets, trays, plant tags/labels, permanent marking pen, and seed raising mix.
When you sow vegetables from seed in punnets/trays, it gives you an enormous choice of different varieties-you may like to bring some of the following seeds to be sure you sow what you want to grow: Beetroot, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflowers, Brussel sprouts, Kohlrabi, Kale, Silverbeet, Spinach, Leeks, Lettuce, Parsley, Florence fennel, Early White onions., Chives, Chinese Cabbage, Radish, Swedes, Mustard, Turnips, Coriander, Rocket, Mizuna, Pak Choy. Some of these seeds may be available on the night from our seed bank and plus we will share seeds with each other.
We suggest planting organic non-hybrid or heirloom seeds, as you can then save the seeds for the future. These can be either purchased at local retailers or online.
The meeting is on Wednesday April 9th at 7.30pm in the Roleystone Family Centre, 19 Wygonda Rd, Roleystone
Entry $3-members free
