What is your weather like?

Take care Flowers!

Windy here in Norfolk too and it's been very wet, there are a couple of inches of water laying on one end of the herb bed.  Temp 6.9C at the moment.

According to R4 news it's much worse on the south coast.  Keep your heads down and your hatches battened folks ((hugs))

I use an old yoghurt pot or cream carton - weigh the right amount out and mark  the level on the carton with a felt tip pen.  Then you can use it as a scoop

Hello Hill Crest and welcome to the forum

Go ahead, tell us about your garden and your plans ... if you can post photos that would be good.

Marc - believe me, the strength of light received through a window is totally different to light received by a plant outside.  Even in a greenhouse plants don't get as much light as those outside. 

Get some large clear plastic water/lemonade bottles.  Cut the bases off and take the caps off (you can drink the water/lemonade if you wish )

Put the plants outside and put the bottles over them like cloches - that'll protect them from the wind and slugs and they'll grow strong and sturdy.

But I'm not going to sow mine until the end of April.
