Heavy frosts

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

It’s the time of heavy frosts and this can be an enor­mous ad­van­tage with some plants. Swedes and kale def­i­nitely taste sweeter af­ter a good chill­ing, but cer­tain cab­bages such as Verona Pur­ple Savoy - prob­a­bly the best tast­ing va­ri­ety - ac­tu­ally be­come more nu­tri­tious, even if al­most frozen solid. The good news is that seeds can be sown now in flats or pun­nets for plant­ing out in Au­gust and great eat­ing by late Novem­ber.
