Ill start them off now and then put them on my outbuilding window sill for winter - hopefully that will be cold enough for them.

Beaus Mum

bekkie I haven't got a green house but have a cold frame type thing, do you think i could grow seeds in that over autumn and winter? X

Its in a sheltered spot 

It depends what seeds, i usually make do witht those big clear bin bags over the pots, just to keep the worst of the weather out.


Beaus Mum

Thank you bekkie, I'll do that too so they should be proper toastie 

If you know anyone who works in the NHS, you wont need to buy the bags
