Sowing/planting, Harvesting, Tidying, Planning

 

There's still time to sow overwinter broad beans and to plant out overwintering crops such as spring cabbage.

 

Continue to remove all plant debris from the vegetable patch or allotment, to reduce the spread of disease and pests and burn all leaves and plants which look as though they may be diseased .

 

If you haven't already done so, order seed catalogues or take a look at online sellers so you can start thinking about planning your veg and herb beds, borders and plots for the coming season. If you're going to grow items like potatoes, get your orders in soon to avoid the disappointment of stock  running out.

 
If you're completely new to gardening, you may not have any gardening tools or equipment. We explain what you'll need from the bare necessities to optional extras.
