Things to plant in Spring
If you are like us, you are probably welcoming Spring with open arms and open bottles of vino!
It's been a long winter, and it’s time to celebrate the warmer weather. 2020, Covid-19 and lockdown might have got you keen to get started in the garden and plant some edible deliciousness.
So if you haven’t started yet but are keen to give it a try and if you are starting out with an edible garden, here are our top things to plant this Spring.
Delicious and versatile beans are a great addition to your veggie patch and super easy to care for.
Make sure you plant them with a trestle to climb and plenty of fresh water to make them thrive.
These vegetables are cheap to buy, but there’s a certain thrill when pulling up your own carrots.
Carrots grow best from seed sown into the veggie patch and kept damp until the tiny seedlings germinate.
Nothing equals a freshly picked, home-grown cucumber for flavour and crunch.
Perfect for the kids to snack on and to add to salads.
Some leafy green is a must in every veggie bed or container vegetable garden.
Plant your favourite lettuce and watch them grow, they grow great from scratch or from seedlings and like plenty of water.
Pumpkins often just appear in gardens as they grow so readily from seed.
The combination of a rich, warm compost heap and a few seeds generally means rogue pumpkin vines that can take over the garden.
There is something awesome about having your own crop of tomatoes growing in the garden to pick from and enjoy in your salads or pastas.
If you haven’t already done so, get them in the ground soon, somewhere with plenty of sunlight and water.
Enjoy the fruits of your labour.
