What to sow in August?
August is a month many tend to focus on harvesting rather than sowing. However, now can be the perfect time to start focusing on some additional crops to enjoy later in the year and even in Spring the following year.
Sowing in the greenhouse.
Make use of open spaces to get the last sowing of French beans underway. Dwarf french beans perform better than climbing as we head towards the end of summer. Carrots, Lettuce, Coriander, and Peas can all be sown now.
Direct sowing outside.
Make the most of the last warm soil and start sowing outside Spring Onion, Radishes, Salad crops, Chard, Pak Choi and Turnips.
