It's already December - how did that happen!? Summer is in full swing, Christmas is around the corner and temperatures are climbing, but it's not nearly as hot yet as it's been in previous years. It's a good time to plant, and the plant list is a long one this month.
December's plant list:
Amaranth, Basil, Bush and Climbing beans, Beetroot, Butternut, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Carrot, Chard, Cape Gooseberry, Celery, Chives, Chilli, Cucumber, Eggplant, Kale, Kohlrabi, Ginger, Globe Artichoke, Leek, Leaf Mustard, Lettuce, Jerusalem artichokes, Onion, Parsnip, Parsley, Peas, Potato, Pumpkin, Radish, Rhubarb, Sweetcorn, Sweet pepper, Sweet potato, Turnip, Tomato, Watercress, Watermelon, Zucchini. Don't forget all the herbs!
Happy water saving, and happy planting – the two are not mutually exclusive, so it's about finding smart ways to do both sustainably.
