I have a problem this year with the warm / hot/ cold  mixtures of weather . I am usualy putting small plants outside to harden off , with the ever changing temperatures this year I have had slower germination . plants that have reached the size for hardening off is not so many   so I have a collection of oddments. My green house is full to the top on a 3 shelf system  so Im wondering about putting out my pots with freshly sown seed which I did a few weeks ago outside in a sheltered position . I have checked on the seed packets and to sow them outside it says May / June/ july . 

Being as the seeds which are left to mother nature still come up regardless -( if the birds dont peck the seed ) then Im not doing anything differant - thats what Im telling myself ! But what are others thoughts - Think I could do with a crystal ball !

Lucky, nature's seeds are, I believe, a bit more rugged than a lot of bought seeds. If the packet says; May, June, July, I would wait till June as weather is so cold.
