Sow some herbs to use indoors over winter
Herbs are one of the few types of plant that can be successfullly grown from seed all year. Part of their success is that we can harvest them at a fairly young stage of development as well as leaving some plants to mature.
Herbs such as Basil need warmth to thrive so sowing them indoors is a surefire way of getting a crop of tangy tasty leaves. Tender herbs such as French tarragon are also good to sow in winter-It's risky to leave tender herbs outside in the garden over winter, sowing replacements now in warmth indoors ensures a supply if frost kills your outdoor plants.
Try a selection including basil, coriander, tarragon, parsley and chives to see you through winter and let their fresh flavours hint of summer cooking to come!
