    Default Sowing suggestions - January

    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.

    I will get us started. When the perma frost lets up I am going to sow some leeks in modules in an unheated greenhouse.

    Early leeks in modules in unheated greenhouse.
    A few toms.
    Early parsnips direct into ground towards the end of the month (I am just that little bit further south than most of you)

    Life's disappointments are so much harder to take if you don't know any swear words.

    I did the onions on Boxing Day but I've just sown leeks, some early toms, chillies, caulis and a few herbs for indoors.

    Still got some Garlic to sow that didnt get into the ground on the longest day due to the snow. Will be sowing some leeks in my unheated conservatory in a week or so.
