Herbs make a great addition to the veg plot, but not all herbs can be planted out just yet.
Plant outside Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley and Mint.
Sow the tender herbs, basil, coriander, dill, Thai basil, and tarragon in pots under glass ready to plant out later month.
Parsley can be slow to germinate, and may look as if it's doing nothing, but don't abandon the pot for several weeks. Herbs are so expensive to buy they are always top of my growing list. Growing herbs from seed or small plants and home grown seem to last a lot longer than the supermarket versions.
You can re cycle supermarket herbs. I keep pots of herbs purchased from the supermarket over the winter and put them in the greenhouse. They re grow and then get planted outside in the summer. And if growing from seed is not your thing, you can divide up cheap supermarket herbs Video advice how to make a cheap and easy herb garden.
This month is the right time to plant out lettuce and rocket, either as small plants or sow under a cloche.
As the lettuce appears, so will the slugs. Slugs love young lettuce and will munch through a crop overnight.
