Herb Planting in April

Last summer I tried to grow tomatoes, courgettes, peppers and all kinds of herbs – everything but the herbs failed. It’s difficult to grow vegetables in pots in a garden that is just a patio so I think this year I’ll try the tomatoes-in-a-bag and use all the pots to grow herbs and salads instead as they won’t let me down!

I don’t have the indoor cupboard space to sow seeds and keep them in the dark and warm until they’re ready to go out so basically I need hardy things that will do fine from start to finish in the little pop up greenhouse in the yard.

Herbs and salads I’ll be sowing in April

  • Coriander
  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Spinach
  • Watercress
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Mint
  • Rocket

Wish me luck!
