Seeds that can be sown now
Recently I have been feeling like all I seem to be doing is watering and weeding. I have also found myself thinking about the winter and how I want a good supply of vegetables throughout the winter. Winter may seem like a long way away but in order to get the plants growing to produce for the winter they need to be sown now.
With all that in mind I headed into my potting shed and looked to see if I had any seed's that can be sown now. Well after a bit of searching I came up with a plenty of seeds to sow but most importantly these could be providing us with food over the winter.
I checked out a few online resources to share with you should you be looking for what you could sow now.
- A little chart from Thompson and Morgan.
- On the Sarah Raven website there is this fantastic guide to what can be sown in what month.
- Looking for a guide to planting new potatoes for Christmas dinner. Check out this article from gardeners world.
