When should I start planting vegetables?
Once you’ve picked out the seeds you want, the next step is the planting – and it’s important to make sure you sow your vegetables at the right time of the year. As a general rule of thumb, most vegetables need to be sown in spring, typically anywhere between March and May. However, the odd veggie (such as broad beans) may require sowing slightly earlier, depending on the weather conditions. Most seed packets come with easy-to-follow sowing instructions on the back, but it’s worth noting that some may require sowing inside initially and, with these, it’s important to let propagation take hold before moving them outside. Vegetables such as tomatoes, cabbages, marrows and sweetcorn will need to be sowed inside.
Top tip: To maximise your yield of crops, get your hands on some handy fertilisers and plant food, and watch your garden grow!
When can I harvest my vegetables?
Just like with sowing the seeds, most vegetables can be harvested roughly around the same time. Harvesting usually starts in mid-summer, but some vegetables will need to be harvested earlier, such as carrots, radishes, potatoes and beans, while others will need to be harvested later (e.g. beetroot, brussel sprouts, cabbages, leeks and parsnips). Depending on weather and growing conditions, you may even get away with harvesting the later vegetables well into the next year.
