6 SIMPLE STEPS to Bigger, Better Crops

01 June 2009 | Posted in Gardening by The Marshalls Family

What a fantastic time of year to get busy in the garden! Early summer produces rich harvests of young fresh new vegetables and masses of salads. But what next?

in Succession Throughout The Summer – for a continuous supply of wonderful textures and flavours sow small quantities of seed every 2-3 weeks.

2 MAKE USE OF THE ‘LONGEST DAY’ which is Peak Sowing Time for Oriental Veg – enjoy outstanding stir-fries and salads in less than 40 days!

3 SOW SECOND CROPS of Your Favourite Veg with Marshalls Quick Grow Varieties – tender French beans in September, peas in October, carrots for Christmas and tasty Fennel through much of winter.

4 PLAN NOW For Hardy Autumn and Winter Salads and a Wide Choice of Winter Brassicas – use space vacated by summer crops for extra cabbages, kales, broccoli, endives, chicory and radicchio.

5 ORDER Your Autumn Planting Onions and Garlic – Marshalls famous onion sets will give you longer lasting stocks next year!

6 RESERVE Soft Fruit for Summer and Early Autumn Planting – for a heavy crop of strawberries next year, plant Marshmello ‘Misted Tips’. These specially propagated plants can produce
up to 100% more fruit in the first year!


All of this, plus much more can be found in our summer catalogue which is due out mid June.
