Peas, leeks, lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, beetroot and swiss chard/silverbeet can all be sown under cloches or early tunnels.
Small numbers of spinach, stump-rooted carrots, mustard, cress and turnips can be sown now.
As the ground warms – shown by a flush of new weeds, keep the soil around your plants hoed and weed free.
