Here is a list of fast growing UK vegetables that we can grow from seed straight into the ground outside in early spring for a quick harvest.
How quick and successfully these fast growing UK vegetables actually grow will depend on the weather (fast harvest if we’re lucky with warm weather / later harvest with cold weather / issues if we have frost), but seeds are cheap and quick and easy to sow so I always get them in the ground and hope for the best.
Sow in April to harvest May/June:
Radishes, Rocket, Spinach, Lettuce, Mange Tout, Carrots, Chard, Pak Choi, Spring Onions.
Sow in April to harvest July/Aug:
Beetroot, Onions from sets, Peas, Potatoes.
