Here in New Zealand, the outside ground has cooled down and germination will be slow, if at all, before seed is eaten by beasties. We wait until the soil warms up to sow seed outside.
If you have a hot-house or tunnel-house, or conservatory then these are good times to sow root crops:
- Sunday 11th June through to Tuesday 13th morning June 2017, then again from Friday 16th to Saturday 17th June.
after the full moon on Friday 9th June.
