Hi, There are a few things you could be putting in now veg-wise but you would have to wait until late-spring/ early summer to harvest them. Onion sets, garlic and broad beans are regular autumn sowing items, I would also sow winter peas, winter cos lettuce, Japenese leaves and corn salad (personally, I sow these in pots or trays and transplant out). You may also get away with flat leaved parsley which I find gets by in the cold here in London where I live. Autumn is a great time for shrub planting, so Rosemary and Sage could go in, but make sure they have good drainage over winter.

With regard to Pears, the size is determined by the rootstock the plant is growing on rather than the cultivar and you should get this information from your supplier.

I hope this helps, all the best, Marissa

Others to look at include

Parsley. ...
Thyme. ...
Winter savory. ...
