The key to a successful crop is knowing what to plant when

See below for information on what grows best in each season, keeping in mind you can usually extend a crop’s season by using greenhouses, shade houses and cold frames.

Another thing to remember is that depending on how close you are to the coast, or how much tree coverage there is in your area will affect the growing conditions and also what you will need to maximise your area’s rain fall and direct sun.
