    ^Yes, but in July he says sow Savoy cabbage (in the first week under cover). I agree with Thelma, it looks to be more of a plant out than a sow date. I find it hard to get the dates of autumn and winter cabbage right. Too late and they don't develop, too early and they struggle in the summer heat.
    Note to self: Getting too old not to have a life.

    Heres another one to try, you can enter your town and the veggies you want to grow and the dates are adjusted for that area. https://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/cale...rsonalised.php. Don’t forget to click on the Optional Settings ‘button’ first to set your town and other options like sow only dates or all dates.

    I've just looked at his list for February. I was only thinking I need to sow some sweet peppers tomorrow and there on his list are aubergines, peppers and chillis so I'll sow the other 2 as well. Tomatoes in a couple of weeks.
