Plant in the veggie garden

As autumn approaches, it’s a good time to think about planting brassicas in the veggie patch such as:

·    Broccoli
·    Cabbage
·    Kale
·    Kohlrabi

If you’re keen to add veggies and herbs to your garden, head on into Council’s Nursery on River Oak Place, Oak Flats, or contact them on 4221 6191 or at nursery@shellharbour.nsw.gov.au. They’re open Monday to Friday 7.30am to 3.45pm (except public holidays), with special Saturday openings throughout the year. Everyone is welcome - not just Shellharbour City Council ratepayers. Staff are happy to help you with advice on what to plant when, what’s easy to grow, what can be grown in a pot and how to prepare your soil for the next crop.

For information on food gardening ideas check out Council’s Grow Local Illawarra Edible Garden Guide on Council’s website. Don’t forget you can also borrow great gardening magazines like ABC Organic Gardener from the library or free on-line if you are a Shellharbour City Libraries member.
