April 4th Week

According to My Middleton in Dig On For Victory we have 9 tasks this week :

1) Sow Calabrese, Pickling Onions and Garlic. - Brocolli can now be sown outside. Pickling onions can be sown. Shallots can have a dressing of fertilizer whilst hoeing between the rows. Onions planted out in March can now have a fertilizer dressing. Garlic can be planted.

2) Look to Your Frames. - Ridge cucumbers can now be sown. Ordinary cucumbers can be sown in frames. Celery is ideal for growing in cold frames.

3) Plant First Leeks. - It states there are two ways of growing leeks, planting in holes or in trenches 6 inches deep.

4) Cutting Asparagus. - 

5) Sow Maincrop Beet. -

6) Earth-up Potatoes; Prepare Marrow Beds. -

7) Bark Ring Fruit Trees. -

8) Hunt Gooseberry Pests. -

9) Sow, Plant and Hoe. - Keep up with successional sowings. Celeriac seedlings need pricking out. Shallots should be dressed with fertilizer. Prepare the sites where your outdoor tomatoes are to grow. Thin salsify to 6 inches. Plant out parsley. Hoe around the base of fruit trees and bushes to keep weeds at bay.
