Have I missed the boat with green manure

I’ve been thinking of growing a green manure this year, have I missed the sowing boat? All the ones I’ve looked at say end September, anyone out there know of one I can sow now? I usually cover up my freed up allotment beds with black plastic to keep the weeds down and stop nutrients being washed away, but would like something prettier.

Hi FloweryB - it's a bit late, but if it's still mild and you can get your fork in the ground, you could try field beans, they usually go in Sept-Nov. Covering with fleece might give them a start.  I would give it a try, you never know.  Good Luck.

Thank you - will give them a go.
