Perennial Vegetables & Herbs

Perennial Vegetables and Herbs - Silverbeet












Plants that keep growing season after season makes a lot of sense to me. Perennials are the most rewarding plants in your garden, where they earn their keep with very low maintenance.

In my Melbourne garden I have experimented with some plants and discovered that they can be grown as perennials, although in general they are annuals.

Perennial Vegetables - Tuscan Kale









Kale, Broccoli. Silver beat (Swiss Chard) and Capsicums can be grown as perannials, by cutting them back sightly at the end of the season.

Perennial Vegetables - Rainbow Chard










With herbs Oregano, Thyme. Rosemary keep growing year after year. Parsley would self seed and you will have more plants without even lifting a finger.
