Planting time!

My, what a mild winter we are having here on the South Coast. It's been so consistently warm that we have put the mason bees out and are preparing the rooftop garden for planting. Depending on the microclimate in your garden, it's probably safe to plant early vegetables like broad beans, peas, arugula, and Asian greens. For more guidance, click here to download a copy of West Coast Seeds' seasonal planting chart.

The Rooftop Garden team is out and about putting things in order and we're looking forward to our first Rooftop workparty of 2010:

Wednesday February 17
Collingwood Neighbourhood House (roof)

Please join us, and bring your gardening gloves if you've got them. We look forward to seeing you.
