More ideas, for plants rather than seeds

Country Smallholding - - Organic Growing -

July is a great month for plant­ing leeks, but they need to have been sown in April, per­haps pot­ted on as well. I al­ways aim to have some spare leek plants to pop in gaps that ap­pear as late as Au­gust. A late plant­ing may not grow large un­til early spring next year, which is fine be­cause you will be very happy to eat them then.

Dwarf French beans as a sec­ond crop are best sown by the mid­dle of June, to plant by early July and crop for six weeks or more from mid Au­gust.

For some­thing dif­fer­ent, sow Ro­manesco cau­li­flower in June, to plant in July. The heads are exquisitely beau­ti­ful, ma­tur­ing in about Oc­to­ber.
