More Veg September Sowing Guide

Rachel at More Veg who are a small seed company has granted me permission to share their September grow list with you. As you can see I've just purchased some lettuce from them after finding them to be the cheapest with a sensible amount of seeds when I was Looking For Winter Lettuce to grow.   

Some vegetables in the list below will need to be sown under cover or with the protection of cloches or fleece as the temperatures dip, other varieties can still be sown in the open.  Full details can be found on every packet.
