Tender stuff always gets started under glass, beginning of may, planted out end of may, when frosts here should be done, this is all marrow family, cucumbers,runner and french beans, sweet corn.
Hardier stuff like carrots, beetroot, parsnips, go straight in the ground in March.
Kale and other cabbage family, and broad beans, start off under glass, and i plant out plants rather than seed, because I find it gives a better start, larger plants resist the pests better. They get started in March.
