KALE

Turn­ing over a new leaf? Plant your kale for those su­per green juices now. If you’re feel­ing re­ally healthy, con­sider a pot­ted goji berry, too; these climb­ing plants will also need a tri­pod.

DRAGON FRUIT

Dragon fruit are a type of epi­phytic

(air plant) climb­ing cac­tus that’s easy to grow in any warm cli­mate. Plant in a tall tub against a pil­lar so they climb the wall and spill down the edge of the pot. Use the fruit fresh, frozen or juiced.

PEAS

Plant pea seeds into your vegetable gar­den. Most will re­quire sup­port, so use bam­boo canes as tripods, or get some pea trel­lis.

ALLIUMS

Time to plant al­lium seedlings – that in­cludes onions, gar­lic and leeks.

Their tiny seeds are eas­ily lost or too heav­ily planted, so mix them with some sand and then sow in rows, only just cov­er­ing the seeds as they’re not planted too deep.
