The start of the summer season and what a great time to get outdoors. Start off by sowing Bellis Perennis, these are in the Daisy family. While with veg, salad cucumbers and gherkins are a popular growers choice for June weather.


If you wish to coax butterflies into your garden this summer, sow these Scabiosa flowers as they are rich in nectar. Small fruits should be ready to pick, while more can be sown to carry on throughout the rest of the season.

August time means most salad and fruits will be ready to pick. Although, spring onions, radish, salad leaves and fast-maturing carrots like Adelaide can be sown. Flower-wise, winter-flowering pansies are ideal ready for the months ahead.

The Hollyhock is one plant perfect for growing in September, these are sometimes called outhouse flowers as they were often planted to hide unattractive outhouses. Vegetables to Sow in September include spinach, pak choi and chinese cabbage.
