  1. Seeds to sow in the coming month - June

    Posted on

    There are plenty of seeds to sow in June despite the weather warming up considerably. 

    Here is a list of vegetable and herbs you may like to try in 2021:

    Radishes are an old favourite that plug up gaps while waiting for your other vegetables to grow

    Cress for those egg sandwiches are an ideal crop for young children to get involved in the salad growing. 

    Asparagus peas are an unusual variety that is eaten like a mangetout.

    Beetroot can be sown from spring to early summer. 

    Broad bean Sutton dwarf produce abundant crops right through to September. 

    Carrots are also another great crop to sow in June, producing harvests up to November with successional sowings.

    The weather is warming and getting out in the garden is a great fun family activity - why not try your hand at growing a few seeds.

    Vegetables
    If the weather isn’t too wet, you can sow some vegetables outside as long as they have some cover from a cold frame or sturdy cloche. You can plant lettuce, onions, early leeks, cabbage and even peas if you can provide them with enough shelter. If you are planning to grow potatoes this year, you can chit the tubers now as well. If you don’t have enough room to grow potatoes in the ground, you might consider growing them in a potato bag or box. The plan is very simply to add a layer of earth (held in place by a new layer of planks) whenever the shoots show above the ground. This gives a long length of underground stem for the tubers to grow on and you can dig them all at once as a maincrop or as you need them as new potatoes. There is nothing quite as gorgeous on a plate as a potato dug moment before it hits the boiling water!
