There's lots to harvest, but very little to plant out or sow in December - here are my favourite veg, herb, salad and flower seeds which are ideal for sowing before Christmas.

We send out all of your seeds and plants with full growing and harvesting instructions, so even if you're a beginner gardener you can be sure of a beautiful and productive garden.

For tips on what you should be getting up to in December in the garden, see our growing and gardening guides, and browse through Sarah's seasonal recipes for this month for more inspiration.
