Have you thought about growing your own veggies this autumn?

I was just saying to Madhouse Daddy the other day that it was great eating our own homegrown cherry tomatoes and lettuces from the planters on our patio this summer and that we'll definitely have to do it again next year, but I hadn't thought about planting things now to grow over the autumn. I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to gardening ! Then this press release popped into my inbox from Seed Pantry and opened my eyes to some of the plants that can be grown now - sounds like a plan ! Have any of you green-fingered experts got any other ideas for foodie plants that can be sown now to enjoy over the autumn/winter months?


Autumn is a great time for seed sowing and Seed Pantry has launched three practical kits to grow your own fresh, organic vegetables. The Autumn Veg Seeds Starter Pack is a complete collection of seeds and equipment to grow pak choi, chard, Oriental spicy leaves and winter hardy salad onions. It contains all the eco-friendly equipment you need to start growing the seeds, including biodegradable pots, dibblets, mini compost disks and labels. Priced at £26.00, the kit is perfect for those new to growing and planting and makes a great gift for budding gardeners.

The Autumn Veg Taster Pack, £12.95, also contains seeds for pak choi, chard, Oriental spicy leaves and salad onions and comes with compost disks, labels, a growing advice booklet and Seed Pantry pencil.

The Autumn Veg Seeds Kit, priced at £5.75 also contains seeds for pak choi, chard, Oriental spicy leaves and salad onions. This kit is ideal for green-fingered growers who already have the equipment, pots and containers for planting and are just looking to replenish seed supplies for the Autumn season.

Seeds in all three Autumn kits grow well outside in sheltered positions and can be planted from August through to October for best results. All kits arrive in a stylish eco-friendly Seed Pantry gift box, made using recycled packaging and printed with vegetable inks. Boxes include easy-to-follow illustrated instructions, plus a handy notes pencil.

The kits are great for growing your own food at home and are perfect for small urban spaces, windowsills, balconies, roof terraces and courtyards as well as garden vegetable patches.

Seed Pantry founder, NeilWhitehead says: “Autumn is a great season for sowing and planting and our three new kits are ideal for those new to growing their own as well as for more experienced gardeners.

“Here at Seed Pantry, we firmly believe it’s possible to grow high quality, organic produce even in small urban spaces, allowing you to enjoy a range of fresh, tasty vegetables, salads and fruits. It’s a great way to teach the whole family about nature and how vegetables grow and it gives a great sense of satisfaction and achievement when delicious home-grown ingredients are added to recipes and meals.”

  1. Looks like a great idea, I planted a plum tree a couple of years back and we got our first plums this year with aphids too unfortunately!
