What to do now - October

  • Sow broad beans and peas to give them a head start before the spring
  • You can continue to plant garlics till mid November
  • Keep harvesting fruit and veg as it becomes ready
  • Lift your maincrop potatoes and keep dry if you plan to store them over winter
  • If you didnt get a chance to turn your compost in september you can still do it during the autumn.
  • Now is a good chance to clean out the greenhouse and disinfect it ready for use again in spring
  • As the crops clear away before winter its best to dig over and fertilise it accordingly for the next crop you plan to plant there. You can find more information on crop rotation and how to fertilise correctly by clicking here
