Spring is finally here! This is the best season to get your hands dirty in your garden. The list of veggies you can plant in the garden at this time of the year is huge. Most gardeners find that the biggest challenge spring brings is choosing which veggies to grow in our urban gardens’ limited space. Here are my picks:

If you have a balcony:

  • beans – dwarf/bush/French
  • basil
  • spring onions
  • tomatoes – cherry tomatoes are best for pots
  • capsicum and chilli.


If you have a plot of soil:

  • eggplant
  • potato
  • cucumber
  • climbing beans
  • pumpkin.
