In The Vegetable Garden in January
Harvest parsnips and leeks.
Star chitting potatoes for planting in Spring.
You can start growing potatoes in containers under cover for a very early crop. Potato patio planters are ideal for growing early potatoes in small spaces.
If you’d like to grown early peas, place a cloche over the soil to let it warm up for a few weeks prior to sowing.
While waiting for the weather to warm up, try growing your own mushrooms using one of our mushroom kits.
If your greenhouse is unheated, protect you potato grow bags with horticultural fleece on cold nights.
- Now is the time to start 'chitting' see potatoes ready for planting in spring.
- Plant any seeds ready for the early spring season.
- Clean old pots and seed trays ready for sowing and planting.
- Start forcing rhubarb.
- Recycle your Christmas tree by shredding it for mulch.
