Hi All,

I recently got an allotment up in Powerstown, trouble is I am starting very late this year. Got a few bits down but would like to ask some advice from the more experienced gardeners around here, am I too late to set carrotts, parsnips, turnips from seed, onion sets and potatoes at this stage?

Thanks,

Deiseboy

My better half planted the last of his potatoes just over a week ago......I'm sure you could chance it. And the garden centres are full of vegetable plants in modules, so plenty of time for lots of things....especially when you think of the fabulous summer we are going to have (!!)

Thanks Sive,

I thought I was a bit late for spuds this year. Anyone else have an opinion?

Anyone know where I can get my hands on some seed pots and pea plants?

Checked Alantic Homecare and they're pretty poor to be honest, dont seem to cater for the veg gardener much.

Try phoning a couple of your local garden centres before you waste time travelling around. My local garden centre has masses of veg.plants and even some potatoes left, but not much use to you down near Gorey in Wexford I suspect.

Woodies have lots of stuff in as well. Smile Although I have found them slightly ore expensive than local garden center.

If you're on the Kildare side of Dublin you should try Johnstown Garden centre outside of Naas. They really cater for the veg gardener, and they also have their own veg show beds set up to give people an idea of what they can do. There's millions of seeds, and they have all the seedling veg and herbs for sale in there at the moment.
