Quick growing tips

Joyce Russell shares some of her top growing tips for May…

It’s worth making a second sowing of anything that failed from an earlier one. On the other hand, it will save valuable growing time if you can find young plants to buy in instead. Look for strong, healthy growth and try not to import any problems.

Sow in situ if possible at this point of the year. Small pots of #compost can get too hot for steady root growth.


Get #tomatoes, #cucumbers, #sweetcorn, #courgettes, #basil, #Frenchbeans etc. into their final growing position by the middle of the month. Cover or wrap plants on cold nights.

Provide supports and tie in tall plants.
