Q.Should I Cover Winter Vegetables That I’ve Just Sown

Zone Limerick, Ireland | Germc added on September 19, 2020 | Answered

I’ve recently sown Cabbage, broccoli and late lettuce – they seem to be ok at the moment but I’m wondering if I need to cover them- all are sown in raised beds- also was wondering if I’ve sown them too early? Thanks
