Shettleston Community Growing Project

Press on with winter digging

Check all stored crops for signs of disease

Begin harvesting Brussels sprouts, stake tall plants if necessary

Finish planting garlic by the end of the month

Broad beans and peas can still be sown outside this month if covered with cloches

Net all brassicas to protect from pigeons

Protect the curds of cauliflowers by covering with bent leaves

Force chicory and seakale

Lift clumps of chives and grown on the windowsill
