It’s September! Here are some jobs to be doing in the garden this month:– 1. Sow fast growing lettuce and summer radish for crops this autumn. Make sure you water it in dry spells.
2. Plant onion sets. These are normally Japanese varieties and will be ready to earlier than spring-planted ones.
3. Harvest crops which were not ready in July – carrots, pumpkins, onions and shallots.
4. Pick beans which were grown for drying and storing.
