Sowing Seeds in August

With the exception of a wide range of salad varieties, there is not much seed you can sow in August that you will be harvesting this year. However consider a the late cabbages, such as Pyramid and Spring Hero, that you will be able to harvest come early spring. Also Japanese Onion seed which is usually sown 3rd week in August.

Fabulous... Grew to a good size and have stored really well

Excellent Radar
Monday, 18 August 2014  |  Edward

I have planted this variety in Scotland for several years now with great results. This last winter was mild and the results were even better with large onions which dried well and we are only halfway through the June crop. My wife loves to use them cooking and says they are full of flavour, soft and ' melt' into the food. Wonderful

Potato - Charlotte
Thursday, 17 July 2014  |  Michael

I have grown Charlotte very successfully in bags and raised beds for Christmas harvest. However, I would suggest that the bag method is preferable as it allows the crop to be moved into the greenhouse when the weather declines. Charlotte is a fine potato but can boil down if allowed to get too large. This is more of a problem with spring planting when the crop is left in the ground too long. Late summer /autumn planting usually does not produce very large tubers making Charlotte my preferred choice.

Bumper crop

Tried these as new crop 2013 on recommendation of review. Were easy to grow, harvested a bumper crop and stores well - still using now. Will buy again this year.

Lets face it - we all have that annoying bit of garden or allotment, or even patio or a balcony that doesn't get that much sun and that we don't really know what to do with, so why not put it to some productive use.
