If you have the space, cold frame or greehouse, you could sow perennials into pots now. They don't take up much room as they grow slowly and are hardy so easier to over winter.
I don't do any direct sowing because of the weeds. I have a bank that is very weedy and considering whether it would be worth sowing some yellow rattle as I've heard that competes with the grass and I think it would be good for wildlife.
There are also some hardy annuals that you could sow and over winter as well.
There's some good biennuals that can be started now as well
