Gardening Calendar

Here we have set out some reminders of what we could be getting on with month by month on the allotment.Sowing and planting times will vary according to the weather and the conditions in your own location.
As not every gardeners facilities are the same, the reminders are generalised to accommodate as many as possible.Each month is split into four sections:

  • General Maintenance
    Dealing with the general tasks that need doing from time to time.
  • Vegetables
    Written with the assumption that it is an average year with no weather extremes.
  • Fruit
    Reminders for the most common fruit grown on allotments.
  • Greenhouse
    These reminders are based on growing in a cold greenhouse of an average size. If heating the greenhouse to any degree sowing and planting times will need adjusting accordingly.
