What to do in MAY

Days are longer, warmer, and the danger of overnight frost is lessening.

  • sow beans, sweetcorn, squashes and pumpkins

  • tie-in Sweet Peas before they get too out of control

  • earth up potatoes as leaves start to emerge

  • apply onion fertiliser to onions and garlic.  How regularly to reduce competition by weeds

  • choose a nice day to start putting up supports for beans

  • protect carrots from carrot fly with fine netting
