FEBRUARY SOWING GUIDE
Under cover: (cloches, cold frames, polytunnel & unheated greenhouses – you may well need fleece for the cold nights for extra protection).
For leafy salads grow as cut-&-come-again (cloches, cool green house or cold frame or window sill pots): cress, chicory (sugar loaf), corn salad, endive, Komatsuna, lettuce, kale, mizuna, rocket, senposai, orache, pak choi and of course our super range of Baby Leaf varieties
Outside: but only in mild areas in mild weather
Broad Beans, Kohl Rabi, Peas, Radishes, Spinach
In the warmth: such as a window sill or heated greenhouse: as we said last month take care not to chill seedlings at night (a window sill behind a closed curtain can be much colder than the room) or to have them too wet.
