What? When? Where?
The right planning is one thing you shouldn't underestimate if you want to grow your own vegetables. Which vegetables should I pre-plant? When can plantlets be put outdoors? How long do I have to wait until the harvest? We've summarised this information in our sowing calendar.
Good planning is half the harvest
Whether you grow plants on a balcony or are self-sufficient on a grand scale, proper planning forms the basis of successfully cultivating vegetables, berries and herbs. Anyone who is guided by the optimum periods for sowing and planting will be rewarded with a better germination rate and healthy plant growth.
Most vegetables can be sown or bought as a plantlet at DIY stores or garden centres. This means that anyone who has neither a windowsill nor greenhouse for their own cultivation doesn't have to miss out on growing.
Let our sowing calendar inspire you to determine which crops are soon to find a home with you.
Crop rotation is another thing you should pay attention to when growing vegetables in a patch. Some plants don't like to be grown together in the same patch and cultivating them one after the other can also cause problems.
