August is a busy sowing month for early summer crops.
Fresh seeds are better for early sowings if conditions are not ideal. Sowings should be made shallow especially with cucurbits. Pay attention to the soil moisture as the ground is still cold. Cucumbers, squash and marrows can be grown under protection or towards the end of the month, directly outdoors. Slugs and snails will be active so be on the look-out.
