Fresh vegetables and herbs straight from your garden are up there with some of the best things in life. You get to reap the benefits of the fresh flavours in your home-cooked meals while saving money on store-bought food. Here is a quick guide as to what to plant in your edible garden this autumn for sub-tropical regions.

What Vegetables should I Plant?

Check out what established seedlings are on offer at your local nursery. Remember to check the light and watering instructions on the packet to ensure a healthy harvest. 

What Herbs Should I Plant?

Herbs are mostly perennial, meaning they will continue to grow year after year if looked after well. These herbs thrive during the cooler months of the year:

  • Chives
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Dill
  • Mint

If you don’t have them, autumn is a perfect time to add them to your garden. You don’t have to have a large block of land to grow edibles, they do not all need a lot of space. Many are perfect to grow in pots on your balcony or in small raised planters along the side of your house. As long as they receive enough sunlight.
