What else can you sow or grow now?

NZ Gardener - - What To Show & Plant This Month ... -

As well as the crops al­ready men­tioned, sow co­rian­der, sow or plant pars­ley, and plant oregano, mar­jo­ram, rose­mary, sage, chives and mint; and sow bras­si­cas, broad beans, sil­ver­beet and spinach (and peas in south­ern parts). Later in the month, sow cu­cum­bers, cour­gettes and pump­kins out­side (or start them in­side now), and plant egg­plants and chill­ies. Get early and main crop pota­toes in now too. It’s Na­tional Gar­den­ing Week this month (Oc­to­ber 15-22) so there’s no ex­cuse not to get stuck in! Jo McCar­roll
