When all danger of frost has passed which is, typically, around the end of May or the Planting Outbeginning of June, planting out can begin and should be completed as quickly as possible. Most plants need a reasonably fertile soil which should also be weed free. If at all possible, your young plants will benefit from the soil having been dug over with compost or some other well-rotted organic matter before planting out. Ideally, dress the soil with a general fertiliser or, better still, pelleted poultry manure or a slow release fertiliser. Water your plants well before you gently remove them from their trays or pots and plant them carefully, spacing them according to the directions on the seed packets. Finally, firm them in well and water thoroughly.
