Try hardy cabbages such as ‘Tundra’ or ‘January King’. Similarly Kale also makes an excellent winter vegetable and can be quite attractive, such as ‘Black Tuscany’ On the theme of attractive vegetables, purple sprouting broccoli makes an unusual addition to the winter vegetable garden. Hardy lettuce ‘All the Year Round’ is a great crop for sowing now for winter salads You could also try onion sets for autumn planting such as ‘Hi Keeper’ , although it’s worth bearing in mind that sprouting broccoli can grow 60-90cm tall so would probably fare better in a deeper container. You could also try spinach in your greenhouse, such as ‘Scenic’ New varieties of carrots such as ‘Nantes Frubund’ are ideal for sowing under cover in the autumn or winter for early crops.
