Spring Planting List (Australian Temperate Zone-Melbourne)

Despite a pretty cold and wet start to Spring in Melbourne now is the time to start laying the ground for a bumper spring and summer harvest.

Remember to prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding good quality compost and composted manures especially for hungry feeders like brassicas. Brassicas and tomatoes will also benefit from a sprinkle of dolomite lime. If you are planting carrots it is best to plant from seed and don't over fertilise the soil as you may get some strange looking carrots!

Mulching the vegetable garden with sugar cane mulch or pea straw will help protect the vegetable roots from summer heat and continue to feed the soil as it breaks down.


During Spring (September, October, November) you can plant:

Asian greens, basil, beans, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, capsicums, carrots, celery, chilies, chives, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, leeks, lettuce, parsley, peas, parsnips, pumpkin, radish, rocket, silver beet, spinach, tomatoes and zucchini.

Your broad beans planted during winter, should be well on the way to harvesting. Just right to form the basis of a Pasta Verde or a broad bean and garlic soup.
