What to Plant This Season

As Summer draws to a close and the Autumn chill sets in, the green-fingered among us are left wondering what to plant in the garden to get it readied for Spring.

Well, don’t go giving up on your flowerbeds and veggie patches just yet, there’s still plenty of life in her yet.  

Cheers nature, you bobby-dazzler!

Autumn isn’t only the most aesthetically-pleasing season (cheers nature, you bobby-dazzler), it’s also the most favourable time of year to get busy in the garden and plant a variety of beautiful blooms, herbs and vegetables. You just have to know which ones are cut out for the colder clime.

Nothing beats cooking with home-grown herbs and the delicious bunch we’ve listed below are sturdy enough to withstand cooler weather. In fact, Autumn is prime time for planting the hardiest herbs such as parsley and rosemary, whilst your summer herbs can be harvested for tapenades, sauces and soups.

From lilies and bee-friendly wild flowers to blueberries and broccoli, here’s your check list for what to sow and grow in October:
