inter is in the air and it is time to establish your
winter vegetable garden. Winter vegetables need a
period of six to eight weeks to get established before the first
Prepare beds by adding organic compost and work it in
to spade-depth. Most of the vegetables can be grown from
seed. If you sow carrots, beetroot and onions, it is better to
sow it thickly and to thin it out later on, instead of sowing
Cabbage, lettuce and spinach can be planted out and you
can sow it in a small area, where it can stay until the plants
are big enough to replant. Celery is also easy to replant.
Fertilise your garden with organic fertiliser to ensure the
healthiest vegetables for you and your family.

vegetables need a lot of water.
List of winter vegetables which can be planted: Onions,
carrots, beetroot, radishes, lettuce, all types of cabbage, cele
ry and chives.
A winter garden is at its best in spring. It should not be hard
for you to take out a plant to make provision for your sum
mer garden - plant accordingly. Due to the price of plants,
I suggest that you plant in the sunny focus areas - use petu
nias, pansies and Namaqua daisies.
Shady areas: There is nothing like primulas to chase away
the winter blues. They sow themselves and will come up
again next year.
Water: Spray off the frost before sunrise. It will prevent a
lot of damage to the garden. Don’t water during the late
afternoon - the water will freeze after sunset, particularly in
Remember to fertilise your whole garden to make sure all
your plants are ready for spring.
Lastly, don’t remove leaves from your beds, since they
protect your plants against the cold.
Enjoy the winter season and stay organic!
