    in the spring I'm going to build a raised area to start growing veg but is there anything simple I can start now with?

    Poundstretchers had packets of seeds for 50p so I bought one of each

    Brussels sprouts
    Peas
    Carrots
    Tomatoes

    Going out to garden centres etc on Saturday so could pick up others

    I agree with WeeTam's list also it's the last chance to sow Spring Greens - they are a very hardy cabbage, good varieties are Spring Hero and Offenham 2
