I have a small bed (a bit over 1m x1m) with a couple of inches of dryish compost on top of clay soil. It's under a plum tree and so the ground tends to be dry, and gets half a day's sun at this time of year. I was wondering if I could grow some winter veges there. I don't like brassicas sorry. I'm thinking maybe corn salad from seed, and silver beet from seedlings but am not sure what is likely to grow. Something easy would be good. I live below 45 degree S on the East Coast of the South Island of NZ (coastal Otago). Not much rainfall (relative to southern NZ) although the climate is damp in winter, and somewhat mild with intermittent heavy frosts. tia, pebble.
