Allan Jenkins from theguardian said that June, the month of weeding and watering. The official end of spring and – hopefully any fear of frost. Time of the longest day (we’ll avoid the doom-laden tick tock of the summer garden clock). The weeks of first harvest.
No more holding back, most everything can go into ground now. Time for the tender plants – tomatoes, aubergines, cucumbers, chillies – to find their outdoor home. Courgettes and squash can be sown outside. The same with French and runner beans. It’s already (sorry) getting late for maincrop carrots, summer beetroot, peas and mangetout. Your last best chance, too, to sow soft herbs, such as basil, dill, chervil, parsley, coriander. Time is moving fast now. There is a lot to do. To make hay, as they say, in sunshine.
