    Folks I'm returning home at the end of April. My vege garden has been slightly neglected while I've been away. What can I plant in May in a sub-tropical area (Laidley)? Would it be to late for garlic?

    If you got some that should be planted in cold regions you might be lucky.
    Brassicas, beetroot, lettuce & tomatoes in a sheltered spot or surrounded by taller plants, carrots, potatoes, can all be planted.
    If you make some wire hoops to go over the beds and get the lightest weight frost blanket material which comes in 50m rolls on eBay etc, you can basically grow anything because you can leave that lightweight cloth in place.
    Several years ago I posted a link to eBay shop for that weight frost blanket so search this site first.

    Well my deployment has been extended because of the bloody virus. Hopefully it won't be long.
