Growing Calendar for October Sowing Seed Collection
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Grow delicious winter salad crops with this money saving collection. These five varieties have been carefully selected for growing indoors in a cool greenhouse or conservatory. Sow in place after clearing out your summer crops.
Either sow in a container or directly into the soil at the borders of your greenhouse, you can expect crops in as little as five weeks for some on the varieties.
If your area is hit by extreme weather these plants may require some protection in the form of a fleece blanket. Avoid watering too much in this situation to keep the plants quite dry.
On warmer days allow a breeze to blow through your greenhouse, this will benefit your plants and help keep them disease free.
Ensure that your greenhouse or conservatory is kept clean and clear in order to allow as much winter sunlight in as possible.
