February is one of those odd times of the year with regards to planting, we’re on the cusp of a new season, so there’s not much available with regards to seasonal planting. Summer vegie seedlings such as Cucumbers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Capsicum and Egg Plants are no longer available from the suppliers, even though there’s still time to get a decent crop before it turns cold. Summer seeds are all still available but unless you’re planning on putting them in a greenhouse over the autumn, they’re probably not going to do very much out in the garden during the cooler months of autumn.
Suppliers are about to start shipping their autumn and winter vegie seedlings such as Broccoli, Broccolette, Cauliflower and Cabbages, however it’s still a bit too warm here on the NSW South Coast and there’s a good possibility your early seedlings might not work until we start to get a run of cooler nights and mornings.
However, there are still vegies that you can plant which will grow well all year round and these include the following:
Beetroot, Carrots, Lettuce, Leeks, Spring Onions, Endive, Silverbeet, Spinach and Snow Peas.
During February at the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre we eagerly await the delivery of our vast selection of Camellias including sasanqua, japonica and hiemalis. Our selection of Azaleas, which are in the process of budding up nicely for the autumn and winter flower season are almost ready for arrival.
There’s always an abundance of incredibly healthy and happy plants available at the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre.come in and visit the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre today @ 118 Macleans Point Road, Sanctuary Point, NSW 2540.
