Looking for a free vegetable planting calendar and guide? Read on!
I found this really handy vegetable planting calendar and guide on Pinterest the other day. I was browsing for allotment inspiration, and thought it would be great to share with you.
It’s such a handy vegetable planting calendar, 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 use 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.
A Handy Vegetable Planting Calendar
How handy is that?! I know I’m going to be referencing it so much, 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 the ground for. At the moment it’s still not much to look at, but we hope it will be by spring!
