What to plant in April

April Planting Guide
 

The Tui vegetable planting guide is my bible when it comes to deciding what to plant. Across New Zealand there are differences in climate and soils. Use this helpful planting calendar to see when you should plant common homegrown vegetables in your region.

Alongside each vegetable, you will see the pots we recommend growing them in. 

If you are planning to grow from seeds rather than seedlings, allow an extra 3–4 weeks for planting.
