Here's Five crops you can still sow this month.
Christmas New Potatoes
If you want new potatoes to harvest from October to December its time to act now. Tubers can be planted out in large pots or containers with drainage holes at the end of July to mid August.If any tubers appear at the compost surface, cover them with a little compost, otherwise they will turn green (due to exposure to light) and become inedible. To help avoid blight keep the leaves as dry as possible as the fungal spores are only produced on wet leaves so only water the compost with a watering can. For the same reason, if a rainy spell is forecast, pop the potato container temporarily under cover.
Chicory is a multi-use plant which is not commonly grown by the amateur gardener. However, it is reasonably easy to grow and provides a crop of leaves from early summer to mid-autumn. If the roots are lifted and stored in the dark then chicons are produced which will provide a delicacy in the winter months.The non-forcing varieties are easier to grow but the forcing varieties are better flavoured. Chicory is not suitable for close spacing or pot growing.
