Handy Vegetable Planting Calendar & Guide

I found this really handy vegetable planting calendar and guide on Pinterest the other day whilst browsing for allotment inspiration, and thought it would be great to share with you.

It’s such a handy guide, that I’ve found myself referencing it multiple times already.  I’m sure you will find the calendar just as useful as I do!

For example, did you know you can sow such a surprising amount of seeds in autumn and winter to get a head start for next year?  And did you know that onions are a great bulb to grow, and not just for using in your cooking?  It’s true – apparently onions repel most pests that attack crops.  Guess what I’m going to be growing right now?!

There are also some great tips here for beginners.

Vegetable Planting Calendar

How handy is that?!  I know I’m going to be referencing it like crazy, especially the vegetable planting calendar, as we do more work on our allotment.

ps: In case you’re wondering, our allotment is going great guns!  The plot needs a lot of work – but we’ve cleared a lot of ground and weeds out and our friend has built a fence.  We’ve got quite a few big jobs to do, such as repairing the shed and greenhouse, but we’re also doing the fun stuff, like planning out our beds, and as it’s quite a large plot we are even picking out what fruit trees we want to plant (apples, all the apples!).  We even have some seeds and plant cuttings growing in mini-greenhouses ready for our poly-tunnel which we’ve bought but need to clear ground for and built.  At the moment it’s still not much to look at, but we hope it will be by spring!

pps: more garden inspiration on my gardening pinterest board.  I also have a fledgling allotment pinterest board – like my own allotment it’s a work in progress!

    • This in incredible! I can’t wait to plan planting for our first full year of allotmenting next year, thank you. Also love the rest of your blog, so much familiarity and lovely to know there are others out there living just like my family :) Using the ergo, soaking dried beans for the slow cooker daily (I expect?!), washing the nappies you got third hand from freecycle and feeling disappointed to be turned down for a mortgage by Ecology! :) Thanks again!
