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:

The idea of an autumn garden sounds amazing however I would like to know how much space do you need for it? Can I make do with some pots?


I love your vlogs at youtube. I have learned to know many things and come to know lots of things I didn´t know UK had!

Absolutely! The planting date for each vegetable depends upon the weather that the vegetable can best tolerate. Cool-season vegetables grow best in early spring or in late summer and autumn when the weather is cooler. Warm-season vegetables grow best during the late spring, summer, and early autumn when the weather is warm.

Absolutely! you are wondering when the best time to plant vegetables in a specific area is, or what types tend to do better where you live, a planting and growing calendar is the first place you should look.


I agree! But you can start planting seeds much earlier. In fact, you should! If you start the right crops now, you’ll likely be harvesting your own fresh veggies by April or May.

I agree! But My opinion learn about wild herbs and what we consider weeds!! They are very nutrient-dense, have a lot of medicinal properties and are very easy to grow and find. They hardly get affected by diseases, they need little or no attention and they grow abundantly to feed you and your family.
