I want to plant some broccoli as advised I can do at this time of year, to last through winter/be ready early spring, but any of the seeds I can find online say to plant in March/April! Firstly, is it ok for me to start growing them from seed at this time of year (I have a small greenhouse to do this in) then plant them out in a few weeks (mid/end August)? If so, what kind? Any kind of purple sprouting? Or 'early'? And disregard the packet instructions? I'm a very armature gardener and am unsure about many steps of the planting process! If anyone can recommend any other vegetables I can start from seed now, then plant out in a raised bed to grow over winter/be ready in spring, that would be much appreciated. Thank you.
