think i might give it a go as have ordered 50 cupanis so can experiment with 5 or so. Have 1 heated 8x6gh and a cold little leanto gh, the latter is mostly used over winter for dahlias etc

HI David, here's the Eagle Seeds stuff re sowing times. But I think it's maybe more appropriate for commercial growers? Tempted to try a few, just to see if I can get some blooming in my gh for April...

@Kate - marvel of the 4 seasons. Reckon they should be able to cope with this weather! Sowed some oriental spicy greens, salad mix and random salad/ herb mixture in 4 wineboxes a week or so back - all coming up a treat. Suppose the slugs haven't found 'em yet!

Am thinking of venturing out to the gh to sow some lettuce seeds. But it's so dark will probably need a torch.

Well I'm just about to order seeds from Eagle as recommended, going to autumn sow some as well! I see from their website that they do 3 sowings...Sept, Jan and April. Any thoughts on this David?
BTW just pulled up this year's lot, even though flowering still (just) the stems were too short to be much use in the house, the greenfly were crawling all over them and the bases starting to look mildewed. But they will come back in the garden in another form, hopefully to help feed next year's.

Overwintered runner bans

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
