Vegetables to sow in May

Summer months are on the horizon and sunnier days and lighter evenings are emerging. The past two months have been a roller-coaster of ride weather wise and the allotment garden hasn’t known if it’s been coming or going. However, there are still nearly 300 varieties available to sow in May, so it’s time to get our hands dirty and get busy on the veg patch.

In the month of May, seeds can be sown outdoors but for an early crop, sow two seeds per deep pot in the greenhouse or on a windowsill, thinning out to leave the strongest seedling, for planting outside in late May or June.

Baby vegetables are very popular with children and are great if growing space is limited. Many can be sown at this time and, with the exception of sweet corn, can be grown in containers and grow bags on the patio as well as in the vegetable garden.
