This is a great site. It will be a lot of use in the future.

As an experiment I joined the mailing list and received my monthly planting list for my Zone 8 in the UK for January.

Potato Plant tuber. In large pots in a heated glasshouse. Minimum 10-12C (50-55F). Harvest from July.

Not quite as long as your list but it's a start.

Thanks Sheila

Hey Mick, glad you like that site. Each month when I receive the reminders of what to plant I send it on to the gardeners in our Apollo Garden. Many of our gardeners are really new at any type of gardening so this helps get past the myth that we can only grow in the summer, and only grow tomatoes and zucchini!

Here in the middle of California we can grow just about everything...some not as well as others, but we can sure give it a great try!
