Last year was a real gardening success the weather was glorious and our plots were bursting with healthy bountiful harvests. However wet and cold January is there is plenty to look forward to and for the gardening calendar it starts with planning for the coming year. We recommend choosing varieties you just couldn’t do without and perhaps try some new ones to push your gardening skills or taste buds.

And if you can’t wait to get sowing there are a few veg varieties that can be sown in January. So why not get a head start, clean out the heated propagator and sow some Superhot Chilli Seeds, they will benefit from an early sowing as they need a long season to fruit. Or perhaps sow Cauliflower All Year Round, Onion Bugatti or Red Baron now into modules and keep in an unheated greenhouse and they will be ready to plant out in spring

See our section for other varieties that are suitable for a January sowing…
