This blog is about my garden located in Melbourne, Australia, where summer heat and long periods without rain can make gardening a challenge. It is the gateway to a series of my blogs showing you how I deal with these conditions....John Ashworth 22/04/2017.
I have carefully researched and tested the best ways I know to grow a range of common vegetables in a warm temperate climate like Melbourne's using micro-organic gardening principles.
For my own benefit, I record results in stand alone blogs containing this information, information I am happy to share with you (subject to my disclaimer).
The links below go directly to dedicated pages in these blogs which are devoted to the vegetable named in the link.
Each page contains a botanical name, varieties grown, the family grouping for crop rotation, preferred growing conditions, nutritional value, soil preparation, propagation, planting, harvesting and pest control.
