    Hello,

    Just bought a greenhouse – does anyone have any advice what seeds I can start planting which will grow through the autumn and winter?

    Thanks

    Hi YH,

    If you are thinking of veg you are spoilt for choice!

    Cabbage, beets, bok choy, spinach, turnips, kale, Chinese cabbage, Leeks, carrots, radishes, parsnips, onion *phew* and really you can just give whatever you fancy a go! ooo … Potatoes can sometimes work too.

    Hope that gives you a few ideas!

    Hi YH,

    Me again!

    I’ve just read the Herb Gardening article on here https://goto4gardening.co.uk/lavandula-augustifolia/#comment-286

    Why not see what herbs you can grow over the winter? Yum!

    oooo!!! What a great investment YH. I’d be looking at all of the spring bedding seeds and plotting my spring bedding displays!! The planning is almost as exciting as the implementing, I reckon 🙂

    Can the suggestions made here also apply to seed trays ready for an allotment?

    Thanks

    Jeff – what plants do you have in your seed trays?

    Are you growing them outdoors on the allotment or under glass?

    I grew All Year Round and Lollo Rossa lettuce in large self watering pots last winter. Great success as the AYR leaves seemed to last for over a week in the fridge.
