Veggie Talk – May 2019


Rhubarb going to flower due to stress! Cut out flower stalk.

Plant seeds now: Lettuce, carrot, parsnip, cabbage etc. Beetroot like the ground to be 50 degrees. Be aware that a cold snap could affect tender plants – they may need to be covered.

Which Magazine : Do not use Levington Seed Compost – poor nutrition value, although Levington Original Multi buy is okay. Les recommends Clover Compost from Chadwell Allotment Association £3.75. Comfrey is good for compost bins/plant food.
