    Default Sowing suggestions - February

    This is going to be a month by month sowing thread. Please post what you are sowing each month, along with any good tips. (no discussions whether it is a good plan or not please ) Hopefully this will help new gardeners get to grips with succesional sowing too.
    The thread will be cleared each month with the sowing tips posted in the Growing Techniques Forum.
    One good resource is the RHS veg growing calender Veg calendar | Royal Horticultural Society.

    More onions for me; plus a few more peppers.

    Also, putting onion sets into modules to get them started off.

    Will be sowing leeks and some more peas this weekend and then later in the month sow hanging basket toms and some more broad beans. Oh and hopefully plant out a few early potatoes under cover as an experiment.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Yesterday I sowed chillies, sweet peppers, (in airing cupboard until they germinate) leeks, alpine strawberries, regular strawberries (not hoping for much but they were crap with runners so thought I'd try) and wild garlic. I might try a few toms at the end of the month. Got some peas and sweet peas chitting on damp kitchen roll in clear plastic tubs and also hoping for a thaw so I can put some shallots and a bit more garlic in.

    I've sown my leeks and planted my shallots in a big bendy bucket in the green house.
