Growing red vegetables is a great way to brighten up your garden while also getting the extra nutritional benefits of these colourful winter vegetables. But when is the best time to sow vegetables for winter harvests?
You can sow hardy winter vegetables such as kale, cabbage and leeks in late spring or early summer as they take several months to reach maturity. They can be harvested throughout the winter months and are hardy enough to survive frosty weather.
Leafy crops such as chard, chicory and parsley need to be sown in early summer for autumn harvests that can last into winter.
