As its cool(!) for the time of year spinach would still do well.

On GQT the other week, they said pretty much any main 'summer' cropping veg could be planted till the end of June ...so you've got a week!

Real Seeds have a fantastic guide:
Monthly calendars:
http://www.realseeds.co.uk/Monthlysowing.html - I'd look at May onwards myself. I've just resown courgettes etc as they have sat still for the last month.

And a specific summer sowing guide:
http://www.realseeds.co.uk/summersowing2.html

and their seeds are absolutely excellent.

I over estimated the quinoa, so have seedlings if the slugs did not decimate them...will check. Also might have white beetroot seedlings, just a slack handful though... if any of that is any good to you...

Oh thanks for the offer, I'm not sure if I will get over your way soon enough, plus this rain makes gardening less than fun doesnt it? maybe best i leave these with you. Thanks for offer mind
