Vegetables to sow in June

By the end of this month summer is official! However, another month means more veg to sow on the plot and there’s plenty to keep you busy with over 170 varieties to choose from. As June brings more sunshine than showers and the warmth is settling in, the threat of frost is no longer the problem it was.

On this month of June, don’t forget to make new sowings of salad, beetroot, carrots and lettuce, so you can enjoy fresh salad throughout the summer.

Remember to thin out your seedlings or you will get smaller crops from the overcrowded rows. Protect carrots from carrot fly and cabbages from caterpillar damage by covering the crop with fleece or netting.

Plant out greenhouse-raised brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, courgettes, cucumbers, marrows, runner and French beans. It’s an ideal time to prepare the greenhouse against hot days by shade netting or shade paint.
