Shettleston Community Growing Project

Complete winter digging of empty beds and new vegetable plots

Plan your crop rotation

Cover ground with black polythene after digging to allow for easier raking later and to keep the soil warm for early sowing

Continue to harvest Brussels sprouts, leeks, parsnips, swedes and turnips

Sow a few early crops indoors

Bend leaves over cauliflowers to protect the developing flowerheads

Start early potatoes
