If you look at the main page of gardeners world .com there is a bit on "what to  do now" this changes week by week.

You can sow broad beans and peas now outside, and salad leaves in the greenhouse.

Hi hamza, glad to see you've been on the forum again.

I've got some rocket and spinach germinating in my cold greehouse.

I meant to say, the variety of broad beans you need to sow at this time of year is Aquadulce Claudia.  They'll cope with the winter weather best of all the varieties.

high there iv'e planted garlic and in the winter in December i have forgot to make holes in my big pot and now so much water has gone into the pot and has risen above the soil this has been happening for a few weeks now what should i do and will anything happen to my garlic

Garlic will rot if it gets too wet.

 Tip the contents of the pot out. You can replant in gritty compost in a pot with holes in the bottom for drainage. Or you can plant in the soil in your garden.

hamza, I think garlic can be planted and started off in a green house in little pots or modules.  Then put into the garden after the worst of the weather. I'm not sure.

So others can help. Is your garlic outside in a plant pot without drainage?

Hamza, I have answered your garlic query on your other (garlicky) thread. When it comes to planting anything from seed, it really pays to read the suppliers recommendations for planting times on the packet. Sometimes you can get away with planting a bit late in the spring and summer, but in the Autumn the ground cools down and some things won't germinate.
