'Like putting money in the bank!' 'Mega-hardy' plants you can sow now to enjoy in spring


It’s not just spring bedding plants that can be sown in November, in fact, the warm autumn means popular cottage blooms can still be grown.

Sarah said: “In the flower department, cornflowers will take almost whatever weather you throw at it, as will Ammi majus and A. visnaga. Those are all well-worth sowing now, so late in this unusually mild autumn.”

Cornflowers are a great choice for brightening up a vegetable patch or planter for their tall stems and bold flowerheads.

While they don’t tend to flower again in the second spring after planting, they can reproduce by self-seeding in certain locations, allowing new plants to emerge the following year.
