Which herbs, fruits & vegies to grow this Autumn

Get your gardening on this season... Have you been wondering what will grow in your garden this autumn? Autumn is a good time for planting, and to rejuvenate your garden for the new season, and for next spring.

According to Burke's Backyard, in autumn soils are still warm allowing new planting to establish good root growth before growth slows in winter. So now is the time!

Check out below all the delicious produce you can be enjoying this season, and thanks to About The Garden for these tips.

Oh, and remember to transfer any leaves that fall on your garden and lawn to the compost bin on a regular basis, otherwise they will smother your plants and grass.
