Autumn Onions – These can be sown this month so that you will be harvesting them come June/ July. These will grow through the autumn and winter months and survive the cold weather. Make sure you net them when the shoots start appearing as the birds will pinch the tops off.
Garlic:- Now is the perfect time for sowing garlic cloves. The cold actually helps them grow by splitting the cloves and making them form into proper-sized garlic.
Peas:- Sow a variety that is ideal for growing through the winter and can cope with the cold weather. A good variety of winter pea to grow is Meteor.
Broad Beans:- These can actually be sown now as well as in March/April. If you sow them now you won’t get any issues with black flies like you normally would. The reason for this is because you will be harvesting them before the blackflies appear.
Asparagus:- this can be so expensive to purchase from the shop. Why not buy a few crowns and get them planted now in a corner of the allotment or garden and eat delicious asparagus all year round.
Spring Onion:- You can actually sow spring onions this month and they will be ready in the Springtime – hence the why they are called spring onions.

Rhubarb:- November is the perfect time to plant your rhubarb crowns. However, you are not meant to pick the rhubarb from the plant for the first year. LEt them grow for a year before picking so that the roots can get formed in the ground.
Blueberries:- These are so expensive to purchase from the supermarket so why not try growing some yourself. When planting blueberries make sure you plant them in ericaceous soil so that they can grow to their full potential.
Currants:- Which currents are your favorite Black, White, or red currents. You can get enormous harvests from current bushes. Also with currents, you can freeze them until you need them so you don’t need to waste a single current. Plant them in the garden now and you could be getting some currents from the bushes next year. However, you won’t be getting good crops for a few years.
