Vegetables to Sow in August

Sowing vegetables in August is all about those fast-growing varieties. Think speedy salads and winter wellness, as there are many veg that come into their own at this time of year when the weather can be a little cooler.

If you plan carefully, the veg you sow in August will grow into those autumn dinners for the family, so it’s time to start sowing cabbages, chard, salad mixes, radishes and turnips. Cover cabbages and chard with a cloche to protect them, and you’ll be rewarded with homegrown veg in time for winter.

You can still sow rocket in a greenhouse for those salads, and remember that it’s wet roots that will kill veg at this time of year – so it’s important to keep your plants dry.

If you have an empty space in your garden and you’re not going to sow anything more this year, sow green manure seeds to prepare the soil for spring. The manure will protect the nutrients in the soil during winter weather, keeping it in tip top condition for next year.
