Plant your vegetables
Try something new this May and plant vegetables you’ve never grown before.
The expert explained: “You’ll have lots to choose from, as May is a great month to sow.
“Consider planting yourself some radish, turnips, cabbage, swede, beetroot or broad beans. By summer, you’ll have grown enough produce for a delicious soup and for fresh salads.”
Tomatoes are particularly great to grow in May.
Keep some young tomato plants in the sunny spots of the house before taking them into the garden to plant at the end of the month.
Chris noted: “Consider buying some less common varieties such as the quirky-looking, ‘Costoluto Fiorentino’ to bring vibrance into your garden.
“They’ll ripen just in time for the first barbecue of summer.”
