Well, it's the time of year when I get so impatient to start sowing and getting ready for this years vegetable and flower planting .....yes too early I know but the feeling is there every year !!!

I seemed to have a bad year last year with my compost - did anyone else ?

I wonder what your thoughts are on the best composts you have used for seeds , and potting on, are you fans of peat free or not?  Also anyone used coir pellets and did you like them?

Thanks for your thoughts

Does anyone grow alliums from seed? I have some fab allium heads from this years flowers that are packed with seed.  Could I grow new plants from these seeds ?  

Also how long will I have to wait for a flower on my Agapanthus I have grown from seed? Alot of green but no flower stalk .....must be 4 years old now !!!

I have bought Arthur Bowers John Inness seed and multipurpose compost and it is awful (sorry Mr Bowers)

Hi, I must say the seed and potting compost I have bought this year to start my seedlings off has been very bad......germination slow and weak and that goes for anything potted on.....anyone had the same problem?
