Grow it

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Spring Cooking -

Corn 1

A tall grow­ing plant, corn thrives in well-fer­tilised soil in full sun. Plant from spring to early sum­mer, group­ing a few plants to­gether in a block to help pol­li­na­tion. Wa­ter well, feed again when cobs form and ap­ply mulch around the base.

Radish 2

Quick and easy to grow, radishes can be planted from early spring to late sum­mer. Feed with sol­u­ble fer­tiliser every 10 days, pick while young and sow more every few weeks.

Car­rot 3

Planted from July through to March, car­rots can be har­vested for much of the year. They need a deep, well-tex­tured soil and en­joy liq­uid fer­til­is­ing every few weeks. Har­vest when young and sweet.
