    Cultivation Policy

    "Cultivation” and, more importantly “non-cultivation”, can mean different things to different people and can be interpreted in various ways. If you look around the site, you will find that there are almost as many different styles of cultivation as there are plots. It is certainly not necessary to maintain strictly regimented rows of vegetables.

When to Sow Sweetcorn

  • Sow Indoors: April
  • Plant Out: May to June

How to Sow Sweetcorn

  • In April start indoors in pots, 6-10cm sized ones I like best
  • If planting outdoors wait till May when the soil is at least 10˚C
  • Sow outdoor seeds 2.5cm (1in) deep and 2 seeds per station in a block formation.
  • Thin out removing the weeker seedlings.
  • Spacings: 35-45cm (18-24in).

Summer should be here!

Usually the risk of frost has passed by now, and with longer days there comes more sunshine and time to be in your allotment. If the weather is dry, then water your seed drills well before sowing any seeds – this way the young plants will develop a good root system.
