Veg to sow in February...

Posted: 09/02/2013 at 16:06

I plant Early Nantes into a 12" tub, about 8" deep - just about big enough to make it worthwhile really. And since it's only a small tub, I can move it to anywhere in the garden for convenience.

Over winter, I make paper pots from old newspaper and in the next week or two, I’ll be planting early peas into some of these pots (2 per pot) in the greenhouse. When they’re through, I put them into a suitable tub and then put them outside as soon as the weather permits - this worked well last year. I do something similar for the maincrop peas except that I’ll put the paper pots straight into the ground when they’re through.

I also plant early carrots into a tub in the greenhouse around mid-March and, again, when they’re though, I put them outside.
