Empty the Greenhouse!•
Posted on 25 May 2012
Jobs for the garden this week1. Start to take most things out of the greenhouse as it will get too hot in there. Plants like tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, peppers, chilli’s and aubergines can all stay in there as they love the heat. Don’t forget to water well. 2. Plant out all kinds of beans, sweet peas, peas, courgettes, tomatoes, lettuces.... Make sure that you harden off the plants before actually planting them. When planted water well straight away. Some plants will benefit from still keeping the tunnels on such as tomatoes and strawberries. 3. Pinch out extra stems from tomatoes, pinch out broad bean tips. 4. Weed any beds that are getting out of control, try to keep on top of the weed situation. Don’t let your vegetables have to compete for energy from the ground. If you keep using the hoe you will save yourself heaps of work later. 5. Sow another batch of salads. If you are doing 2nd batches of beans or peas sow these too. Sow carrots too... 6. Harvest asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, and salads. 7. Get ready to protect any flowers on your soft fruit - more on this coming soon.
