3 May 2013.
June is the first month of summer and yet around the 21st of the month is the longest day. There is still plenty of growing time left. From the middle of the month the onions stop putting on leafy growth and their bulbs start to swell. The Japanese sets that were planted back last Autumn should be maturing along with the garlic and shallots.

There is lots to get through this month, but everything depends upon the weather. In the southern half of the country the danger of frost is beginning to fade but if you live north of the River Trent it is worth holding back until at least the end of May.
