    Successional sowing – apart from lettuce (yuk!) do any of you practice successional sowing for vegetables? Any top tips for successional sowing?

    Thank you

    Hi Harold,

    I plant carrots using this method every fortnight is good for most quick growing plants if you want to practice successional sowing.

    Hi Harold,

    Me again! You could do successional growing with most of the vegetables that Boris has mentioned in one of his weekly posts for this week.

    Yes, agree with Verity – fortnightly. I love pesto, a fortnightly plant of basil keeps me in pasta dinners!

    If you are short on space a good tip for successional sowing is to start the plants in trays then transplant when you are ready for them.

    Hi Harold,

    Going with Keen’s suggestion – while not in the garden, you can practice sucessional sowing all year round indoors with the smaller salad and herb crops.

    Have you seen how much supermarkets charge for Pak Choi?? It’s so easy to grow and you can easily grow far more than you can eat!!
