Try planting some spinach this winter.
Spinach is one of the few plants that will grow in winter conditions.
Gardeners’ World suggests growing spinach indoors on a bright windowsill for winter pickings.
Alternatively, it suggests: “Grow spinach in moist but well-drained soil or compost in partial shade.
“Sow seeds in a shallow moist drill and cover lightly with soil.
“Sow spinach successionally every few weeks to ensure a continuous crop.
“Harvest baby leaves for use in salads or mature leaves to wilt for use in soups and stews.”
Sow your first early peas such as Meteor or Kelvedon Wonder right now.
Gardeners World says it’s important to protect the peas from slugs, birds, and mice by growing them in covered containers.
You can sow them in a trench about six inches wide and three to five inches deep, placing the peas about three inches apart in staggered rows.
