SEPTEMBER IN THE GARDEN

Patchwork Blog Banner
Can you believe it’s September already!? While we’re all still in level 3 lockdown, the seasons are changing around us. Temperatures are steadily increasing, leaves are budding on trees and veggies are already speeding up the their growth.
 
Spring is the perfect time to get planting. There’s nothing better than home grown food, especially now – it’s a great way to get the kids involved with a family project away from screens where they can learn about living ecosystems, cycles and experience the joy of homegrown veg.
 
September’s plant list: 
 
Amaranth, Bush and climbing beans, Broadbeans, Beetroot, Butternut, Cauliflower, Carrot, Chard, Cape Gooseberry, Celery, Chives, Chilli, Cucumber, Eggplant, Kale, Kohlrabi, Leek, Leaf Mustard, Lettuce, Ginger, Globe artichokes, Jerusalem artichokes, Onion, Parsnip, Parsley, Peas, Potato, Pumpkin, Radish, Rhubarb, Sweetcorn, Sweet pepper, Sweet potato, Turnip, Tomato, Watercress, Watermelon, Zucchini
