April Planting: Fruit and vegetables to grow in April•
Posted on 4 April 2022
April is a busy time of year for growing vegetables in the UK with lots of seeds, sown earlier in the year, now needing to be transplanted and others to be started off indoors to be planted out a bit later.
Vegetables to be sown directly in April
Sow leeks any time this month if you will be growing the plants in an unheated greenhouse and wait until mid to late April if you’re growing outdoor varieties. To establish good and strong root systems on your seedlings use Rootrainers.
Sprouts can be sown now under cloches or an easy tunnel. They’re a slow growing vegetable which take around 26 to 31 weeks to reach maturity. Sprouts are hardy and can grow in almost any area where the soil is very fertile.
Peas and carrots can be sown direct now or in planters.
Beetroot is another super easy crop to grow any fertile and well-drained soil
