These vegetables can be grown outside to become fully mature - Onions (matures the following year).

These vegetable seeds can be grown under cover just for their leaves for use in salads etc. - Beetroot, Spinach, Rocket, Lettuce, Rainbow Chard, Pak Choi, Chicory, Mustard, Cress, Peas, Kale, Dandelion.

These flower/herb seeds can be started and raised under cover in a greenhouse, polytunnel, cold frame, or an area sheltered from heavy frost. The young plants will be hardy and ready to plant out next Spring - Echinacea, Calendula, Lavender, Thyme, Pansy, Snapdragon, Sweetpea, Verbena, Foxglove, Sage, Mullein, Anise Hyssop, Comfrey, Bellflower, Delphinium, Dahlia, Lupin, Caraway, Cowslip Primrose, Indian Tobacco, Rudbeckia: Black eyed Susan, Pincushion Flower (Scabiosa), Clematis, Herb Robert Geranium, Iris, Aquilegia.
