    <p><b>What to Sow in November?</b></p> <p>A traditional point of dormancy in the garden November is a hard month to get any kind of production underway although with recent climate changes it is possible to sow some seeds and harvest a crop however you should allow a few additional days (7+) for seed germination to take place.</p> <p>Garlic is ideally planted now as well as any late winter onion sets. You can start to sow Onions &amp; Spring onions into trays and cells.</p> <p>Peas can also be over wintered if you have a greenhouse or polytunnel you can be sowing any peas now! Carrots can also be sown now again you need to provide some cover.</p> <p>Lettuce can be sown in trays and is best enjoyed as a cut and come again crop. Once the leaves are around 5-6cm high cut the crop back just above soil level they will regrow 3-4 times before harvest is very limited.</p> <p>If you are lucky enough to own some grow lights and a heated propagator give Microgreens a try!</p>

    <p><b>What to Sow in December</b></p> <p>Take a break from the garden in December. With everything much ground to a halt and production is slow there is very little that can be achieved during December. It’s often used to plan next year’s growing season.</p> <p>Salad crops can be continued with regular sowing and harvesting as previously mentioned, let the lettuce grow to around 5-6cm high cut the crop back just above soil level they will regrow 3-4 times before harvest is very limited.</p> <p>If you really want to get a jump on the season and if you have access to a heated propagator and grow lights Boxing Day is the day most gardeners will start tomatoes, sweet peppers and chilli peppers. Sown on heat and under lights will allow you a 3-month head start on the growing season!</p>
