Sow and plant
Transplant tomatoes. Tomatoes need full sun, sturdy wooden stakes and a reasonably sheltered position. Feed with a nitrogen-rich fertiliser until the first flowers appear, then switch to a potassium-rich blend. • Sow annual herbs including basil, chervil, coriander, dill and fennel. • Sow cucumbers, melons, pumpkins and zucchini direct. • Sow all types of beans, from borlotti to classic Scarlet Runners. They’ll germinate in 7-10 days.
