If your garden is looking bare and dull, don’t worry, as it’s never too late to grow your perfect vegetable garden! Even though certain vegetable plants should be in the ground now, many plants actually grow better in June and July due to the temperature of the soil.
Many vegetable plants come alive in the Springtime. They not only add colour to your garden but once grown, you have the pleasure of eating something you have created from scratch! Artificial Grass Direct have put together the best summer veg for you to grow in June; read on to learn tips and tricks to help bring your garden to life…
Cabbage – If you are new to planting, cabbage is a great place to start as it is one of the easiest vegetables to grow. When you notice the cabbage head begin to form, make sure to water and fertilise.
Spinach – This vegetable is a favourite for gardeners to grow due to its strong resilience to mildew and the ability to go well with a wide variety of dishes.
Corn – Corn is a fast-growing crop and perfect for the summer weather. Once grown, you can pull it off the stalk and throw it on the summer barbecue to grill in a few minutes.
Carrots – Even though carrots take a while to grow, (you may be waiting until the end of summer) they tend to last well and stay fresh until you need to use them.
Herbs – A few herbs that grow and react well with warm weather are basil, oregano, thyme and sage. These herbs can be used to add flavour to a range of dishes such as a chicken and basil stir-fry or add oregano on top of a pizza.
These are just a few plants to enjoy growing through the summer months. If you have a favourite plant, let us know by tweeting us at @GrassDirect!
