What to Plant in June

It is still warm in some parts of the country so knowing what to plant in June is a little tricky this time around. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued its El Niño Southern Oscillation index report saying that most of the modelling it has done are in favour of a La Niña. What does that mean? It means above average rainfall for south, east and northern Australia. Knowing this means that you can start to plan around a wetter winter and spring. What does it mean for your area? Less frosts? How will your soil handle the extra wet? Starting to think like this, looking for clues in the weather is an important skill for all gardeners to learn.

This is what to plant in June in your part of Australia.
