What fruits, vegetables and herbs can you sow in May? What can you plant out in May?

 



Are you thinking of sowing some vegetable or herbs this May? 

Thinking about what will work well sown in May? 

These are some of the edible plants that i like to sow in the month of May including some that i sow directly and some that i sow into pots and trays in my greenhouse, which is actually my little conservatory. 

Seeds i sow and keep indoors: 
Sweetcorn
Pumpkin
Courgette 
Lettuce (all year round varieties) 
Runner beans
French beans
Kale
Early Purple Sprouting 
Lemon Balm 
Sage
Basil
Chives
Parsnips 
Watermelon (sugar baby) - I sow and keep in the greenhouse to grow 



The following seeds i sometimes sow directly though they work sowing in greenhouse to start off too (sometimes i sow in both outdoors and indoors just in case!):

Beetroot
Chard
Carrots 
Peas
Cauliflower
Spring onion 
Turnips (golden ball) 
Runner beans (some varieties) 


Lots of my seedlings that i started earlier in the year start to be planted out in May, i try to wait until the weather warms up in my area and the risk of frost has past before i put things out but i often find myself impatient. 

My cucumbers and tomatoes do go out in mid to end of May if i feel they are strong enough and often my pumpkins and squash are ready by then too. May is a great month for both my little garden and my allotment, the sight of greenery and lots of flowers appearing fills me with joy.
