Every year in spring, it's time to get into the beds and start sowing. We have summarized a range of vegetables around the year for you in our sowing calendar. This way you can see at a glance when which vegetables need to be sown and harvested and you can also make optimal use of the vegetable area throughout the year.
What else should you pay attention to when growing vegetables?
You should pay attention to the order of the vegetables that are grown in the same place. The reason for this is that different vegetables require different levels of nutrients from the soil. In order to ensure that your vegetables bloom splendidly and taste juicy or crunchy in the end, you start in the first year with vegetables that require a high proportion of nutrients. These include pumpkins, cabbages and cucumbers. In the following year, carrots and fennel are ideal. In the third year, the soil is already quite depleted, but it still has enough nutrients to grow onions and radishes, for example.
After three years, it is usually recommended to let the soil rest for a season so that the nutrient content increases again and the cycle can be restarted. Here you can download our sowing calendar free of charge.
