Look to get your seed potatoes now so you are ready for sowing in March and not left scrabbling around for the last few seed. You will be able to sow Parsnip seed any time from early February. Got any winter lettuce or garlic in?

Hi all,

This is a great forum and a great help to someone like me.

I'm fairly new to vegetable growing and am also new to Ireland. I had a pretty good understanding of weather patterns at home and could work when to plany, though I did just wing it a bit, I had great mint, roquette, chillis, basil and rosemary in a large pot in flat in Melbourne.

Now I'm in Dublin and I'm not really sure when to start planting, again, I don't have a huge amount of space and haven't really begun anything - don't have a box or soil or anything yet - is there a guide anywhere as to when I should plant what?

Thanks
