Starting the growing season

It is that time of year again. The hedges are coming out, the leaves will soon be forming and the bees will soon be pollinating. Therefore, it is now time to prepare for growing the first plants in your garden.

First job to do, if you haven't already, is to prepare the soil for the future growing season. Flower beds and vegetable patches should be soon ready to plant up. Incorporation of manure and compost will boost productivity and health of the soil and is best to do this now before the season fully commences.

Start to plant up tomato plants from seed in the green house or potting shed as this will increase the chances of them surviving the spring when planting out. If you are planting into a green house or poly-tunnel it always works best to set seeds into pots or trays of compost first then plant out after 2-3 weeks of growth. It is best to stagger the planting out of the tomato seedlings and sowing seed every 3-4 weeks will maintain a constant supply of fruit over the summer.

Also, early potatoes will start to get shoots at this time of year so planting them out will give an early crop of potatoes for lifting in June or July.
