Quick Planting Guide
Season Spring and Summer

How To Grow

  1. Prepare soil by removing weeds and raking the surface to break up large clumps.
  2. Sow seeds by scattering them relatively thickly over soil.
  3. Rake seeds in or cover with well-rotted animal manure or compost.
  4. Dig plants in before they set seed. Mow or shred larger plants prior to digging in, and turn small plants into the ground using a garden fork.
  5. Remove any woody debris to the compost heap.
  6. Distribute the organic matter evenly through the top layer of soil so that it can quickly decompose.
  7. Allow around six weeks between digging in green manure and planting a new crop.
