This weekend, I sowed my 2014 squash seeds, in pots in the greenhouse. Whenever I sow these seeds, I always marvel at how something no bigger than a thumbnail can go on to be so darn useful.
I love growing squashes. They’re nothing short of tremendous, and for so many different reasons.
In the last week, I’ve planted out my broad beans and begun hardening off the peas. The weather is warming up and all of a sudden, my beds are starting to become home to plants all over again.
Exciting times, but only if things go to plan. Planting out can be tricky and your plants need your love at this vital time in their growing up.
Here are 12 tips I use when planting out.
I can’t recommend growing radishes enough. Not only are they ever so more spiky and peppery when homegrown, they could possibly be the easiest veg to grow. The seeds are big, so easy to handle, and from my experience they’re not at all fussy about soil. I often sow a batch wherever I have an odd bit of space, and I rarely dig the area over properly.
Plus, Radishes will germinate at just 5oC, making them great for early season sowing, and they’re not averse to some shade either.
