February – Growing advice and Information from nsalg.org.uk
February mean it’s time to really start getting back into the allotment. More advice this month from the National Allotment Society.
We get a glimpse of the early signs of the arrival of Spring this month. The soil begins to warm up around the middle of February and we can see the buds beginning to swell on fruit trees and bushes. Overwintering vegetables begin to look less sorry for themselves and they start to produce new growth. These are the signals that it is now safe to think about sowing a row of early, peas and broad beans using a hardy cultivar. It is too late to sow the broad bean ‘Aquadulce’ it is only really suitable for growing overwinter.
