May day bank holiday could be coldest for 40 years.

Cold nights and winding conditions has not been ideal for young brassica plant seedlings.

I am now expecting the first of the field grown transplants to be ready for pulling sometime towards the third week to the end of May.

Hearing that Britain will be hit by frosty air and cold weather this bank holiday is a large contrast from the record breaking heat wave we had for Easter.

On the grass for haylage front I would expect to be cutting end of May or early June .

Grass grows at a lower temperature than brassicas and is not looking too bad.

Any docks , thistles or other weeds have been eliminated from the swards to produce perfect weed free fodder.



mix of meadow grass and rye grass

few days of warmer weather and night as well should help this seedbed
