This table below, Transplanted Vegetable Crops, lists crops that in most cases fare best when started indoors as opposed to being direct-sown, and are then transplanted out when they reach suitable size and conditions are favorable.

Use this chart as a guide for estimating the:

1) the approximate number of days from sowing to the transplanting stage;

2) approximate number of days from transplanting until the respective crop reaches maturity;

3) the crop's average projected yield per in a standard allotment sized 2.4m x 1.2m bed.

Please note chart applies to UK growers only and bed size is calculated as the standard garden growing bed or that found in many UK allotment sites.

The list of transplanted vegetable crops is alphabetically sorted.

The actual timing and yield can vary based on various factors such as weather, soil quality, watering, and care.

It's essential to adjust based on your specific growing conditions and the time of year sowing. For example sowing lettuce during autumn and winter months the time frame can be extended by 30+ days!
