Fruit and veg job checklist

12 - 18 May 2014

It's time to...

  • Tie in new shoots of blackberries and cane fruits to support wires
  • Sow sweetcorn in deep pots, raising strong young plants to transplant into the garden in June
  • Pinch off strawberry runners as soon as they develop, to stop them competing with developing fruit for nutrients
  • Earth up soil around emerging potato shoots, which encourages higher yields
  • Sow seeds of the following crops outside this week: radish, spring onions, coriander, parsley and chives
