What to Plant September

You can feel it, smell it, even taste it in the air - Spring is most certainly here and everything is going to be ok. Suddenly life is up and there's a lot to look forward to... and if you let the winter garden slip, now is the perfect time to make a comeback.  Here's a snapshot of what to plant. For those curious about whether to plant from seed or from seedling, we've marked alongside each of the varieties how we'd go about it. S stands for seedling, SP is from seed - propagated and then transplanted when ready - and SD is from seed directly in the patch.

Of course the form you plant them will vary from person to person; depending on the micro-climate of your garden and your planting plan (and maybe on the colour of the underpants you wear on a Tuesday and any other superstitions you belong to).
