‘Second cropping’ potatoes are seed potatoes that have been stored at low temperatures to keep them dormant so that can be started into growth in summer rather than spring.
Believe it or not, there are still plenty of seeds you can sow in August, for harvests from late summer through until the autumn.
If we’ve played our cards right, then July is one of the best months in the kitchen garden.
For many gardeners June marks the end of the spring rush, and no more seeds will be sown.
A lot of people are put off the idea of growing vegetables because they think that it’s incredibly hard but that isn’t the case.
It’s the last day of National Gardening Week, and I hope you’ve been enjoying the vicarious harvests from my garden!
