RAISED BED AND CONTAINER WEEKLY DIARY
WEEK 2 IN JUNE

PLANT OUT SECOND SOWING OF FRENCH BEANS
The second sowing you made of French Beans last month will be ready for transplanting outside.

Try to avoid root disturbance as much as possible and water the newly planted French beans well to help them establish. Plant them about 15cm / 6in apart. Click here for more details.

SUPPORTS FOR FRENCH BEANS
Some dwarf French beans are self-supporting, some aren't. It's best to be safe so place a few sticks near the plants to support them as they grow. Twigs are ideal.

HARVEST SUMMER RADISH
Harvest summer radishes, see our main radish article by clicking here for full details.

START TO HARVEST NEW POTATOES
Sometime towards mid June your first early potatoes will be ready to start harvest. Small new potatoes are the tastiest of all so enjoy them in the knowledge that they have been grown with no spraying of chemicals.

Continue to harvest them over the next four weeks or so. Harvest whenever you need them leaving the rest in the compost for harvesting later. They will keep better in the compost than they will in the fridge or kitchen. For our full article on harvesting potatoes, click here.

THIN BEETROOT SEEDLINGS
Continue to thin out beetroot seedlings as they emerge from previous sowings. Full details can be found in our beetroot main article here.

WEEKLY FEEDING OF RAISED BEDS

FEED POTATOES IN CONTAINERS
We recommend feeding potatoes in containers every other week with a liquid tomato feed. Click here for more details in our main article.

SOW MORE LETTUCE SEEDS
See our main article on lettuce for detailed instructions and a video showing how to sow lettuce in raised beds and containers.

THIN LETTUCE SEEDLINGS
Thin lettuce seedlings to about 10cm / 4in apart initially. Later in the year when they start to touch each other harvest the small ones and eat them, these are the most delicious of all lettuces. See our full article on the care of lettuces here.
