    Hi

    I realise that there are different websites about these quesitons, but I thought I would ask them here too, as a completely new grower.

    Does anyone have any ideas for a new grower who wants to :

    • starting growing vegetables in autumn/winter and only has two planters which have a shallow depth of approx 21cm?

    I want to ask first, as otherwise i can see myself planting too much too soon, and I want to try and do it properly.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Afraid its a bit difficult to say if you can grow any veg this time of year as it depends on the size, length and width, of your planters , where they are located, open ground, sheltered or inside a greenhouse etc ?

    Also can you mention which county you are in as you will have a longer growing season the further south you are.

    The only easy plants we can suggest for this late in the season are Autumn Onion Sets, Garlic bulbs and things like Winter lettuce.

    Some other suggestions can be see here -

    . Also the planters are outside in the garden, not in a greenhouse.
