Onions

Onions are a simple to grow garden crop, and are used in a multitude of dishes worldwide. Some prime ministers have even been known to eat them raw!

Tromboncino

This is the zucchini with outstanding flavour that doesn’t get too big too soon. Be sure to train the quick growing vines up a trellis so it hangs straight or you’ll have lots of long and curlies!

Midyim Berries

Midyim berries are one of Australia’s tastiest bush tucker foods, with a sweet and tangy flavour that has a delightfully subtle hint of spice.

Parsley

Parsley is a must have in any self-respecting home garden, with culinary and medicinal uses that have been celebrated for centuries. 

Nasturtium

Nasturtium is a ridiculously easy-to-grow plant whose leaves, flowers and seeds are all edible! They also look good in the garden, repel aphids and perform a host of companion planting duties. We love ’em!

Avocados

The amazing avocado – delicious, nutrient dense and the source of last year’s millenials-vs-millionaire great smashed avo/mortgage debate. Still, what could be better than having a ready source of avos in your backyard?

Asparagus

If any vegie is worth waiting for, it has to be asparagus. For 10 months of the year asparagus is little more than a weedy looking perennial, but in spring the plant is transformed....

Beetroot

Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. The greens should not be overlooked; they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.
