Done a few bits of seed sowing could not wait any longer sowed cauliflower seeds and flowers on the 3rd Feb lots to sow this year

Tootles that is amazing

May be good to space them out a bit so you can get around 3 sides of the raised beds to plant and harvest

Go on Tootles bribe your other half

Zoomer44 your seed purchase sound good, enjoy your plot today nice and sunny here 

Weyplotter great you got free wood always good to get free stuff, don't know any thing about electric saw as use hand saw, you got some nice purchases with your trees you get to enjoy the blossom  

I bet they are nice sized trees being 2 yr olds

I got mine last weekend and have them all chitting 1st, 2nd and main in a cool north facing room on a window sill and normally do this each year, they tend to be fine think the main crop ones take longer to grow the chits and by the time I plant them out the shoots are about 2.5cm tall same size as earlies are when planted

depends are you growing them in a wigwam or straight row?

you could lean them in the direction you want them to grow when they are a bit bigger

Wills I would leave them when you buy them in garden centres - some times they have 8 or more plantlets in a 9cm pot just plant them out all together
