Autumn Gardening

Tips and advice for all your autumn gardening

Autumn is a good time to choose trees for brilliant foliage, even if you don’t live in a cool climate.

Organic-growing expert Vastili also shows how to plant and nurture vegies for picking in spring, and tries his hand at making wine from home-harvested grapes.

Cooler air and cooler soil make mid-autumn ideal for planting, pruning and propagating.

Shrubs: Clip and prune back the late summer growth

Weeds: Flickweed and fireweed thrive in the cooler weather so pull them out while they’re still small

Cuttings: Multiply your favourite shrubs by propagating with cuttings

Vegies: Plant seedlings of broccoli, cauliflower and silverbeet for harvesting in spring
