This vegetable calendar has been specially developed for growing vegetables in enclosed raised beds, open raised beds, grow bags, containers and pots. It is displayed as single page for the entire growing year.

If you want a more detailed week by week diary of growing vegetables in raised beds and containers then click here.

If you are new to raised bed gardening then read this introduction to understand how we have calculated the row lengths. We have assumed you will be using two 1m / 3ft square raised beds.

If your raised bed(s) is larger, simply increase the row lengths to suit your particular circumstances.


Be assured, we have grown all the vegetables mentioned below in our own raised beds in Warwickshire. The calendar is a result of years of gardening experience and it will guide you through the raised bed gardening year with lots of pictures and helpful advice.

To view the full article for a chosen vegetable simply click on one of the vegetables at the top of the calendar. To see more details about an individual task just click it to be taken to the appropriate page.

To someone new to veg gardening this calendar would be really useful as a download.
Hi Maureen, how do you mean "a download"? Something which can be printed?
