Winter vegetables n UK

Hello fellow gardeners, Having had a disasterous frst season trying to grow my own vegies, I thought I would try some winter varieties. I know where I went wrong with my spring/summer crops, ie: pests, parasites soil quality feeding watering/overwatering.
I have read online that you can plant sprouts, cabbage, peas and broad beans, but different sites contradict eachother as to when they can be sown.
Any help or tips(both would be very nice) please for a frustrated newbie gardener?
Thanks in advance Part_No

Sprouts as in mung beans, alfalfa, etc indoors? Yeah, that's not too hard. Google comes up with http://www.islandnet.com/~see/living/articles/sprouting.htm

This one has a number of insect pests, at least in many places. For a small scale garden just picking off the insects by hand is often practical. But yes, does well in the fall.

Here in Washington, DC, USA (USDA zone 7), I've read this does better in the spring (the plants being more cold tolerant than the pods). But the UK winters are probably milder, so if you have read it works there as a fall/winter crop, sure.

Probably will overwinter for a spring harvest. Although I'm not sure exactly how mild the winter has to be for this to work.
You could also consider:
lettuce spinach kale
and probably some other cold weather crops I'm not thinking of just now.
