Starting this week, green-thumbed Britons should consider preparing overwintering vegetables in time for next spring.

Onions, shallots and garlic

Onions and shallots are best planted between September and October, as these seeds are less sensitive to cold exposure.

Planting onion sets in September also offers the opportunity for an earlier crop in the coming year.

However, soil that is prone to waterlogging should be avoided as this can increase the risk of disease.

Garlic, though often sown in the spring, is also well suited to being planted between September and early December.

Autumn planted garlic grows larger bulbs compared with those sown earlier in the year.
