“Summer has slipped away for another year and the cool days if autumn have arrived,” writes Editor Michelle McHugh. “The main crop of potatoes are dug, leaving the garden looking bare, but it provides me with plenty of space to plant my winter soup garden.”
In our Autumn issue of INSEASON, garden editor, Franco, shares his guide to growing your own autumn garden with tips that will get soup pots bubbling all over the country. It’s the perfect time to plant winter veges like cauliflower, fennel and kale, and get ready to harvest limes, carrots and broccoli.
Franco also shares his clever composting tips to speed up the natural process, and the most effective organic methods to keep out pests.
