Good morning all G'day Pat

I try to read all the posts on Hello Forkers, but I can't always comment on everyone's goings on - as DD says, it doesn't mean we don't care - just that we're not superhuman - although Wonky does a good job of remembering everything - maybe it's 'cos she has youth on her side

Anyway, good to see you back Wsong - have you got the opportunity to have a bit of a rest before Christmas?  Do you have lots of baking/work to do?

Not a plant I know - thanks for sharing it with us

Daffodils are sprouting too early!

Yes, it's because the weather has been mild - they're hardy and they'll slow down when the weather cools.

When/where to sow

Hello Pompey

Tetley brings up a very good point - when the seedlings have germinated and begun to grow they will need pricking out - they will take up a lot of space when they are all in pots. 

I would have a look here

As you'll see they'll take up a lot of space once they're in pots - and if you start really early they may need to be potted on into even bigger pots before the weather is kind enough for them to be outside.

The trick is to time your seed sowing so that you have enough room to grow your plants on in a protected space.
