What to sow in October?

Shorter days, darker nights maybe even a chance of frost. October does not have to be all doom and gloom. Plenty to be getting on with.

Sowing in the greenhouse

Carrots, Winter Peas for a spring harvest! Spring onions, lettuce, Cauliflower, and herbs can all be sown now. You may wish to start your broad beans in the greenhouse also!

Direct sowing outside

Broad Beans although we recommend the greenhouse in modules as hungry pests tend to dig up the seeds! Garlic, Onions and Onion Sets, Shallots, Green Manures. Now is the time to also plant Rhubarb and Asparagus crowns.

Earlier sowings of spring cabbages, cauliflowers, kale, and broccoli can also be transplanted outside now.
