Seeds to sow in October

October is a great time to sow Sweet Peas. You’ll have your pick of the seeds and autumn sown sweet peas produce the most vigorous plants and slightly earlier flowers too.

There are lots of Perennial Flowers that can be sown in October. They are easy to grow and produce flowers year after year. Perennials give you lots of flowers for cutting and your garden wildlife plenty of food and places to hide and overwinter.

If you live in a very mild area then you can carry on sowing Hardy Annuals outdoors in October so your new plants can produce good foliage and roots before it becomes too cold. You’ll always get the strongest plants with most flowers by sowing in autumn and you’ll save precious time in spring too. Besides, it’s so easy to scatter a few seeds now and just let them get on with it!

October is a great time to sow Wild Flowers such as Yellow Rattle, Field Scabious and Poppies. The soil is still warm and seeds germinate fast producing lovely healthy plants before winter sets in. British wildflowers are quite hardy and will survive the worst of our winter weather. As soon as temperatures warm up in spring they’ll start producing more shoots and leaves ready for flowering in early summer.
