What to Sow in December
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.
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.
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!
