It’s your last chance to sow some veg

Start more crops now and you can har­vest for the rest of the year

Garden News (UK) - - Contents -

It’s around now that you’ll start to think about wrap­ping up your plot’s grow­ing sea­son, turn­ing your at­ten­tion fully to har­vest­ing. The work will slow down and you’ll no­tice a change of pace as you de­scend into late sum­mer. How­ever, it’s not over till it’s over! It’s last chance sa­loon for a num­ber of crops that you can still sow now, with a view to har­vest­ing them in a cou­ple of months or so.

There are plenty of herbs that can still be sown now for use in a few weeks – basil and dill can be grown in pots for late sum­mer and au­tumn use, and can then be brought in­side when the weather turns. Chervil and pars­ley on the other hand, sown now, will be ex­cel­lent herbs to pop by the back door out­side to har­vest through win­ter.

Mizuna, mus­tard and rocket will be good ad­di­tions to sal­ads, sown ev­ery cou­ple of weeks or so, through the rest of sum­mer, au­tumn and be­yond. Else­where on the plot, this is an­other re­minder to get your Christ­mas pota­toes planted now, for har­vest­ing in late au­tumn and through De­cem­ber.
