Growing Fruits & Vegetables - January


January is a good time to order seeds for the year ahead. If your green fingers are itching, a cold frame, polytunnel, greenhouse or a heated propagator, will allow you to start sowing tender crops, such as chillies, that need a long growing season. Garlic can be sown outside too, and you can also sow sweet peas, plus microgreens on a windowsill.

Veg: Microgreens, chillies, aubergines and peppers plus tomatoes under cover; garlic outside

Flowers: Sweet peas, under cover
