Hi, with all my earlies now out and more space to be freed up in the near future I was wondering what would be good to plant now and in the coming months?

There are many vegetables that can be sown now for a winter harvest, and will be ready to eat for your christmas dinner.

Sow Winter Cabbage, Main crop Turnips, a range of winter salads including lettuce, pak choi and oriental greens. Everything will need protection from cold weather from Late September onwards.

Thanks for that. I've been searching for an online calender to see when and what to sow but keep getting sowing calenders to buy. Anyone know ahandy site with online calender?

Thanks, that's just what I was looking for - I actually still have some of those seeds - didn't realise some of the brassicas could be planted this late...

I wouldnt go by Seedaholic's calender, it seems they just listed all their seed catalog!

No way you could sow onions now for instance!

Have a look here:
