I went to dobbies in Jan and they had the starter plants in, the staff member advised me not to buy them unless I had a cold frame. I bought some seeds and the internet said that usually when the shops have there starter plants in, it is a good time to start seeds. I have still got them in the propagator as I have had no problems with them dying like the strawberry seeds? I take it i should still take it off then? I have no space for a green house but I want to get a cold frame but not until payday which is the 19th.

Ill try and upload some pics shortly

Hi,

I have bought some lily bulbs from b&m, there is four smallish bulbs in a pack with what looks like sawdust. The instructions are a bit confusing. It states plant january - may. Should I plant now to get them to flower this year and how do i decide how many to a container? also should i use a general compost with some gravel at the bottom for drainage?

thanks

Hi, I planted some petunia seeds at the beginning of feb. Im a bit worried there growing quicker than i expected. I already have a bunch of small seedlings. Will this mean they grow to large for the house and that I have to put them outside before the risk of frost has passed?
