Veg Seeds To Sow In June

When it comes to sowing vegetable seeds in June, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are some of my favourite vegetables to sow in June.

Beetroot

Beetroot is a great vegetable to sow in June. It is easy to grow and can be harvested in just a few weeks.

Sow the seeds directly into the ground, about 2cm deep, and keep the soil moist. Beetroot prefers well-drained soil and a sunny spot in the garden.

Broccoli

Both sprouting broccoli and the full-headed calabrese can be sown in June.

I like to start my broccoli in module trays and then transplant them outside when they are around 10cm tall.

Broccoli needs plenty of water and nutrients to grow well, so make sure the soil is rich and moist.

Cucumbers

Because of how quickly they grow, cucumbers can be sown in June.

They need plenty of water and nutrients to grow well, so ensure the soil is rich and moist.

Sow in large pots in a greenhouse better moving into their final spot. I grow all of my cucumbers under cover, but some varieties can work well outdoors, even in the UK.

Courgettes can also still be sown in June. They need plenty of water and nutrients to grow well, so ensure the soil is rich and moist.

Sow in large modules or small pots before moving into their final position.

Kale

It is best to start the seeds indoors and then transplant them outside when they are around 10cm tall.

Kale isn’t too fussy so doesn’t need much special care, a great crop to grow for beginner gardeners.

Lettuce

I like to start my lettuce in module trays and only plant out when they are well established.

This is just to help protect them against slug damage.

Do remember though, that some lettuce varieties struggle to germinate in warm temperatures so they often aren’t suited to greenhouse sowing.

Peas

Sow the seeds directly into the ground, about 2cm deep in row, and keep the soil moist.

Peas can be slow to germinate, soaking them in water before planting can help.

Pumpkins

You can still sow pumpkins now for a late harvest.

I like to sow them in pots in the greenhouse and then plant them out when they are well established plants.

Radishes

Radishes are super speedy crops and perfectly suited to a June sowing.

Great for filling gaps left by harvested crops. I direct sow them in shall drills.

Runner Beans

Its not too late to plant runner beans. I sow them where they are to grow, just push the large beans slightly below the surface of the soil and keep them well watered.

Most runner beans are going to grow tall, but dwarf varities are available

Spring Onions

I like to multi-sow my spring onions in modules.

Sow a few seeds per module and then plant out the entire module together, the onions will grow just fine like this.
