What to Plant in the Cape Town Winter?

Hell to All,

I have a flat with a smallish balcony. I am not from Cape Town and am wondering what the best food plants to plant in the autumn and winter are? Any suggestions most welcome.

Hi Sharon,

As long as your balcony gets some sun, you could plant peas (with bamboo supports – or dwarf peas which don’t need support), cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, swiss chard. I suggest you go to your nearest nursery and see what seedlings they have on offer – what they have will be in season 🙂
