Vegetables to Sow in May

By May there’s a great choice of vegetables you can sow directly in their growing space outside, including the brassica family, kale, peas, salad leaves, radish, spinach and swede. Early in the month, it’s best to start off seeds like marrow, courgettes or sweetcorn in the greenhouse, although from the end of May they can safely be sown outside.

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.
