May Jobs in the Veg Patch

cucumber-planting-l_A2Many vegetables can now be sown outside and some of the most popular and easiest to grow include:

Beetroot, Cabbage, Carrots, French Beans, Lettuce, Peas, Runner Beans and Radishes.

Continue to earth up early potatoes

Check broad beans for black-fly and support with canes.

Harvest – Rhubarb, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Spring Cabbage, early lettuce and oriental salad leaves.

Keep an eye out for late frosts and protect young plants with cloches or horticultural fleece – if you don’t have either of these don’t despair as plastic drink/milk bottles make great cloches, just cut them in half and hey presto you’ll have 2 readymade cloches.

Last chance

Plant seed potatoes.


Happy Gardening
