Summer Garden Tips

Growing your own Apple Tree

For Apple trees to flower they need a long period at low temperatures which means the climate of the Western Cape is the most suitable, although they can be grown in gardens almost anywhere in South Africa. The best time to plant your apple tree is during winter. The soil must drain well and have a pH of around 6.5. They prefer a sunny position (6+ hours of direct sunlight daily) in the garden and plenty of compost should be added to the hole. Water well during hot seasons and control weeds around the trees to stop them from competing for water and fertiliser. Also apply an organic mulch around the tree.

What Vegetables to grow in Winter

You might think that the colder months aren’t great for growing vegetables, but most winter vegetable plants are fully hardy and will cope well with cold winter weather… In South Africa, April to May is the perfect time to plant these vegetables:

Shallots, Onions, Cauliflower, Broad beans, Thyme, Garlic, Spring onions, Micro Greens, Spinach, Snap peas.
