Veggie Gardener's Guide to January

Well it's a new year, a new month, but the same old season. This still means new crops though! Here's my guide to January for the best veggies for Australian gardens!


As always, grow what you want! Some things just work - experiment with your gardens! Read on for the tried and tested recommendations if you're feeling curious!

As above for this hot season!

So happy planting for this one!
The warmer weather also calls for a lot of mulching now, help your soil retain water and stay on top of weeds so they don't take too much of the reserve - especially for those in water restrictions! Tag me in photos on instagram (@rosasbackyard) of things you're planting that aren't on this list and let me know how it goes!
