You really have to pinch them out if they've grown a fair bit after an autumn sowing Meadow. That means you have a bushier plant to put out when spring eventually arrives
I usually sow direct in spring, but decided recently to stick some in pots in a plastic greenhouse - purely to save me braving the cold weather to go out and sow in April
The cold springs up here mean that there's little advantage in sowing now, spring sown ones will catch up anyway. I just fancied doing it for a change to see if there was any real benefit.
