What to plant in January

Vegetable patches in January will need a little TLC to ensure you get plenty of fruit through Autumn. Continue to water your plants consistently and deeply checking the soil as you go. Keep an eye out for brown patches on the bottom of your tomatoes – blossom end rot often appears now and powdery mildew will appear if the humidity rises or you are overwatering. Use mulch and shading to prolong the time between drinks. You can give your plants a boost with liquid fertilisers to keep them in top condition.

You can still plant the following but you may need a sheltered position to get your peas, lettuce, broccoli, brussels sprouts and salad greens through the heat
