August

Things are slowing down a bit so take some time to pause and enjoy your plot in-between the general tasks listed below:

Keep an eye out for caterpillars on your swedes and spring greens.

Keep sowing carrot and make sure you have enough seeds ready in September to sow winter lettuce.

You can still do some successional sowing with radish.

Keep feeding your tomatoes

Lift second early potatoes as required.

Sow onions - the small ones for spring onion salads and main crop onions.

Sow Winter spinach.

Lift early beetroot.

Prune summer fruiting raspberries - the sooner they are pruned the better. Cut right down to ground level, all the canes that have just fruited and train young canes in their place. (advice from A G Hellyer)
