Calendar

Know the best seasons when to plant or when to transplant your vegetables, fruits and herbs. BeeGreen provides the guidelines and schedule to  become an expert in properly planning your sustainable garden. Maximize the yield of your organic produce by careful thought and consideration. The BeeGreen planting calendar will show you which months and seasons are ideal to schedule your sustainable garden accordingly.

 

See an abundance of organic produce in terms of your fruits, vegetables and herbs through the BeeGreen guidelines in this Durban planting calendar. Merely schedule to plant your seeds into the soil during the months marked “plant” and put your organic seedlings which have been potted or grown in seedling trays into the soil during the months marked “trans” to allow them to take root in your sustainable garden and yield the organic produce you desire. This calendar is used merely as a guideline for optimal organic produce in the Durban climate and seasons but it does not mean it is guaranteed that anything else will die if not planted according to this schedule nor does it guarantee that a plant will survive if planted according to the planting calendar. Feel free to contact us if you have any amendments you feel better suit our Durban seasons or something you have learnt in your gardening experience. Contact the BeeGreen team on info@beegreen.co.za to add your knowledge to our guidelines- we at BeeGreen realize that there is always more that can be learnt in the work, schedule and knowledge of the herbs, vegetables and fruits in our sustainable garden: Durban.

 

You may notice that there are very few fruits on the schedule and planting calendar. This is because organic fruits are usually grown on trees that can take from 2 to 6 years roughly to begin fruiting. BeeGreen suggests this guideline for all fruit trees: sew or transplant them in early to mid-Autumn when root development is promoted in the milder Durban temperatures. They root during the Autumn season, then are ready for abundant growth during Spring. Still, monitor them carefully for the next three to four weeks and maintain a damp soil around the roots. Only once they have adjusted to the Durban seasons and outdoor conditions, are they safe to consider growing and establishing. They still will require monitoring, pruning, watering and removing of flowers (if you wish to promote tree strength instead of rushing to the flowering phase) throughout the Durban seasons to ensure they turn into healthy trees in the sustainable garden that yield an abundance of organic produce when the time for harvest comes.

 

We at BeeGreen use this plethora of knowledge to aid and empower the new gardener to attain the sustainable garden they want and the organic produce that will make them and their ecosystem thrive in line with the BeeGreen movement. Join the community and the movement in playing your part and start with this knowledge to schedule when to plant and when to transplant your vegetables, herbs and fruits and even adding to the knowledge database.
