Weekly Garden Diary: Winter Week 11

This post was most recently updated on January 12th, 2021


Don’t be misled by the lovely weather that may occur at this time of year. Sowing seeds into open ground while the soil is still cold and wet will only result in losing most of the seeds and seedlings.

Heirloom Seeds from our Family to Yours

Peas, leeks, lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, beetroot and swiss chard/silverbeet can all be sown under cloches or early tunnels.

Small numbers of spinach, stump-rooted carrots, mustard, cress and turnips can be sown now.

As the ground warms – shown by a flush of new weeds, keep the soil around your plants hoed and weed free.


If you have yet to prune your fruit trees, get in and do it now before the buds start growing. Remember to cover each and every cut with pruning paste.

For further reading, I really recommend all of these books. I own every one of them and they are amazing resources!
