Help please! We made some raised beds in late spring and have had great success with kidney beans, beetroot etc. but now has anyone got ideas on what we can grow through Autumn and Winter. I can't find anything that we're not too late for !?!



Try 'Cut and come again' salad leaves, and turnips (if you like them!) You can also grow spinach and radishes.

Thanks Spritz for the good ideas, I'll be getting some seeds now tomorrow. We do like the turnips you get from the supermarket but we did grow some small ones this summer and they did do well but they were too strong tasting and they gave Gray the runs lol. Needless to say, we've composted them. Bit of a waste but we were never going to eat them :-l
