Typically, the days are numbered for the growing season but we’re here to remind you that the party isn’t over just yet. There’s still ample time to start planting now so you can enjoy a bountiful winter harvest.


Fruit and veg have preferred growing conditions but with carefully-chosen crop paired with airgarden’s innovative aeroponic technology, your plants will be thriving throughout the cooler months.


Get ready, here are the best fruit and veg you should be planting in your airgarden right now.




Leafy Greens And Herbs




We’re headed towards winter, so we recommend planting immunity-boosting dark leafy greens and dropping them into every dish you can. Think sprinters like rocket, kale and spinach that grow so fast you’ll be adding them into your soups and stir-fries in no time at all.


  • Spinach
  • Rocket
  • Kale
  • Coriander
  • Basil
  • Lettuce
  • Lavender
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme






Vegetable Must-Haves




We love our salads during the summertime but winter is all about those warm, hearty dishes. We’re talking colourful vegetables like eggplants and squash to pack into your lasagna, roasted cauliflower and Brussel sprouts, and fresh pea soup.


  • Dwarf Cauliflower - patience is a virtue with this. It can take 12-16 weeks
  • Broccoli
  • Peas
  • Brussel Sprouts





Fresh Fruits




We love our fruits as a fresh, healthy snack, especially when they’re plucked straight from our airgarden. Not to mention you can turn them into a well-deserved dessert featuring strawberries topped with icing sugar and Cointreau. Yes, please.


  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes - subtropical areas only
