JUST because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean your garden has to hibernate. Winter can actually be a great time to get outside and start growing plants.

In Australia, growing plants during winter prevents them from bolting to seed as quickly as they would in summer, allowing you to enjoy a longer harvest. Winter planting can be a rewarding way to keep your garden vibrant year-round.
