It’s a busy time if you enjoy growing your own vegetables, herbs and fruit. We offer regular gardening advice in the local press, here are a couple of tips for this month –
having cultivated the soil and incorporated plenty of organic matter into your veggie patch, now is a great time to sow Kale, Broad Beans, Kohlrabi, Leeks and Parsnips directly into the ground. Continue to sow salad leaves, lettuce, spring onions, carrots and beetroot to ensure continual cropping later on. Also, if not already done, plant onion sets, shallots and garlic. Always sow seeds at the appropriate depth and spacing. Two top tips when seed sowing: 1. Carefully water seed drills before sowing so as not to disturb the seeds, but to make sure they are well watered. 2. Cover small seeds with compost for easy germination. We’re always happy to answer any questions so feel free to contact us for advice.
