Gardening Calendar

May

  • Continue with successional sowing of most vegetables and salad crops
  • Earth up your potatoes
  • Tie in new shoots on autumn raspberries
  • Apply mulch to discourage weeds and retain moisture
  • Plant out seedlings from your cold frame once frost danger has passed, ie towards the end of the month. These include beans, courgettes and squashes
  • Tie in sweet peas as they grow
  • Watch out for pests on fruit
  • Plant sweetcorn
  • Hoe, hoe, hoe - especially bindweed after a wet spell
