Are there any edible crops which can be sown now?

I'm just wondering as an amateur gardener image

    Light levels at this time of year will work against you Ryan, plus its getting cooler, so unless you have a heated and lit greenhouse I'd leave it a while yet.

    But you can plant any number of fruit bushes and trees.image

    And take some hardwood cuttings from fruit bushes - if you haven't got any you could ask around as see if someone would mind you taking some cuttings

  • Ryan - if you are in the southern part of England - say from Bristol on down, you may be able to plant some over wintering onion sets providing the ground is neither frozen nor waterlogged - though success is not guaranteed! Sow from sets and not seed. My own experience in Gloucestershire is that anytime up to the end of November is ok, so if you are further south than that you *might* be ok.

    I have found that the keeping quality of these is not as good as that of main crop onions so you would have to use them as and when they are ready to be pulled.

  • That sounds like a great idea but only problem really is the rain we get quite a bit down here in winter
