Cold Frame growing

Posted: 18/02/2015 at 21:22

You can do i have started hardy annuals off in a cold frame such as cornflower sweet peas godietia etc. They will germinate a few feeks earlier than direct sown ones and i suppose you could just sow direct into the ground. Watch out for slugs though.

I tend to start off the plants indoors and transfer them into a cold frame when they need hardening off for outdoors. I only have my sweetpeas in my cold frame at this time of year.

I use root trainers. I been using the same set for 3 years so they have lasted if your careful. I find they work great as you can start sweetpeas in september leave the in a cold frame. I have always had good strong plants with good root systems.

I remember last year i accidently snapped one of the shoots off and i threw the shoot in a old pot outside that i had not yet replaced the soil in and the shoot rooted by itself and i used it as a plant. Very east to root from cuttings. I normally just divide the tubers or grow from seed as others have said as they are so easy.
