    Default Calender on when to plant things

    Hi All

    As I have just got my plot, I am doing some homework at the moment sifting through books and websites getting info for reference on when to sow seeds and plant things out for the veggie patch.

    There must be a quicker way............... does anyone know of any quick reference guide on when to sow seeds, what season etc?

    I would appreciate your help with this.

    A number of ways you can sort yourself out with this one, NSB
    • magazines like GYO have a 'what to do this month' section
    • most veg books have a month by month guide
    • you can get hold of a wallchart with what to sow when....in fact, isn't there one to download that I've seen on a previous thread? Worth doing a search for, and I'm sure you can print something off

    Get hold of a wallchart, or good reference book. Then, when you start collecting seeds (as we all do) buy one of those cheap organiser wallets from Woolies with 12 or so divider pockets. Label each pocket with a month and put your seed packets in the appropriate pocket. Works well as long as you remember to keep checking.

    All the above, plus take a chance on some things. Just bung them in, late or not, and see what happens
