Planting Seeds In February: The Good Life

Print This Article

Get your garden planning started with planting seeds in February

I thought I’d write a guide to planting seeds in February for you good folk out there.

Simply sow the seeds on the surface of damp, free-draining seed compost and sprinkle lightly with vermiculite. Cover the container with a clear plastic bag or piece of glass and place somewhere bright and warm for the seeds to germinate (about 18-20C). Once germinated remove the cover and grow on. Here are some of the seeds I’ve been sowing.

Planting seeds in FebruaryBroccoli:

Broccoli belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family and has a reputation for being one of the healthiest veggies. If you live in a warmer climate then broccoli is a fast-growing and easy-to-grow crop. Its prized for its high vitamin content and anti-cancer agents.

Planting seeds in FebruaryHerbs:

Most herbs can be sown at this time, it’s just a matter of taste. Herbs can be grown for medicinal as well as culinary purposes. Also, growing herbs indoors is convenient for harvesting and great for those without gardens. It also extends the season for annual herbs so you will have fresh produce all year round. Common herbs to grow yourself are Thyme, Sage, Oregano, Mint and Rosemary.

Planting seeds in FebruaryLettuce:

Lettuce is one of the easiest crops to grow from a pot or a grow bag. If they are grown under cover then you can keep them going all through the year. You can mix the seeds to have variety and they are cut and come again nutrition.

 

Planting seeds in FebruaryPeppers:

Fresh, crisp peppers are a garden favourite. Peppers take up little space and can produce high yields when planted close together. Plant as many different varieties as possible. They come small, big, hot, mild, and an array of different colours. Start seeds 8-10 weeks before your last frost date indoors for best results. Beware, the slugs love them.

Planting seeds in FebruaryTomatoes:

The most popular garden vegetable. Growing tomatoes is not only fun but treats you to some of the best tasting fruits in the world. Tomatoes come in many colours, shapes, taste, and sizes. Grow a few varieties every year to find your favourites. Start seeds 6-8 weeks before your last frost date indoors for best results. Can be grown indoors as well with small varieties.

Planting seeds in FebruarySprouts:

Put your plants in the garden from mid May to early June, when the young plants are 10-15cm (4-6in) high and have seven true leaves, leaving 60cm (2ft) between each plant. Try growing with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles. May is probably the last month for sowing Brussels sprouts if you want them ready for next season.
