For most people, February is too early to sow any but the hardiest crops.
Fresh from the excesses of Christmas, and with the urge to turn over a new leaf, now is a good time to get the garden ready for the season ahead!
December is another quiet month in the garden, when the bad weather is a good excuse to spend time indoors planning for next year.
There’s something nice about the idea that there’s not much to do in the garden in November.
If October starts warm it can provide a nice breathing space, to catch up late harvesting, saving seeds and generally getting the garden ready for the winter.
Believe it or not, there are still plenty of seeds you can sow in August, for harvests from late summer through until the autumn.
