RAISED BED AND CONTAINER WEEKLY DIARY
WEEK 3 IN JUNE
Article by David Marks.
We recommend many times in this raised bed diary that you sow seeds in spaces left after harvest. A good idea but you can go one step further to get the most from the limited space in a raised bed. A week or two before harvesting sow seeds in pots and bring them on in a sunny place. Then, when you harvest a vegetable, transplant the pot grown seedling into the vacant space. It works a treat for carrots, beetroot and many other vegetables.
HARVEST SUMMER RADISH
Harvest summer radishes, see our main radish article by clicking here for full details.
FERTILISE RASPBERRY PLANTS
For the second time this year apply a long-lasting fertiliser (bonemeal or blood fish and bone) to the surface of the container soil, a handful should be enough. Work it into the top surface of the soil with a trowel being careful not to disturb the shallow roots. See our main raspberry page for more details.
