    Question What to grow in October?

    I am a total newbie to allotments ( Grown a few bits and bobs in my garden before) but I am inheriting one at the end of September and it should be in good quality

    I was just wandering if there was anything I could sow in early October to keep me ticking over till next year so it is not just stood there

    thanks in advance

    Garlic, giant garlic and overwintering onion sets. Depending on where you are, over wintering broad beans may be worth a shot. Your local GC may have a few spring cabbage plants or plugs available, pot those on and plant out as soon as you've got some space ready.
    you could also plant up some fruit bushes, black/red/white currants, rasps, gooseberries or rhubarb.
