April in the Vegetable Garden

In the vegetable garden
Dig in a 5cm (or more) layer of compost, well rotted manure or green waste into your beds to prepare for the growing season.
Plant your chitted potatoes outside in the ground or in potato grow bags.
Harvest asparagus spears when they are no more than 18cm tall.
For quick and easy pea supports push some twiggy sticks around your pea plants now.
Thin your carrot seedlings to achieve good-size carrots - do this in the evening when fewer carrot flies are around.
Many crops can be direct sown into the ground now including parsnipscabbages and radishes.
Prepare vegetable seed beds by removing all weeds and forking in plenty of compost. Cover prepared soil with sheets of black plastic to keep it drier and warmer in preparation for planting.
Build raised beds to take the bending out of growing vegetables.
