The end of August beginning of September is the time to plant vegetables.
One should remember that almost anytime in Southern Africa is the time to start a garden and flowers and vegetables flourish throughout the year.
In Zimbabwe one cannot divide the year into four seasons. The division is often indistinct between one season and another. There is the winter or cold season from mid-May to early August - the summer then takes us to November and the normal wet warm season from mid-November to early May.
