Research results have shown that chitting 1st & 2nd earlies  gives an advantage over those not chitted.....no advantage was given to others.

Hi, Rosemummy.....yes, your newly sown seed will be fine in your cold-frame. They will take a little longer to germinate, but will be stronger plants.

Talking about memories, did anyone have cabbage water? I was given a cup of it every Sunday with my dinner by my mum.

Oh yes, I would recommend it to anyone who has never tried it.....as good as many thin soups I've tried.

Another yes here to Family Favourites......Worker's Playtime??

Will mine survive in a plastic greenhouse at two weeks old? 

Most definitely....they need tough love, otherwise they will be just weak & straggly.

Should have mentioned previously in my reply to Yvies.....that information is for sweet peas being planted in the open ground. Those being planted in containers can certainly be planted out now, providing they haven't been subjected to heat and thus are fully hardened-off.
