I grew a whole garden from my DIY coldframes a few years ago. You can grow anything in them. Mine were a sort of mini greenhouse type of construction with lots of shelves not the low level traditional types

Runner beans

I collected some from last years crop as well, good to know no preparation is needed, just sow them. I'm still eating my harvest from last year, at this rate, the supply in the freezer will keep me going until this years are ready. I love the look of the beans as well, such pretty colours

Bee Friendly Garden 2015 - Ready, Set, Go!

Great list, I always try and grow stuff for insects. Think the best is to try and always have something in flower throughout the year so they have a continued supply.

Some on your list are perennials/biennuals so wont flower the first year (don't know if you know this) Don't let this put you off though, the year goes by so quickly. Best of luck with it all

Snowdrops and  crocus are good this time of year. There's foxgloves,snapdragons, rudebekias, scabious also are really good.

Cornflowers

I would bury the leggy stems as much as possible to give the plants some stablility. I might even be tempted to plant them out if I was running out of pots and space

snap dragons

I had the same a couple of years ago, it was the year of the snapdragon! The garden was full of them. Yes wait til they've got some true leaves, some roots  and then pot them on. If you can't face doing  all of them, I did small clumps into pots and then thinned them out as I repotted. I gave away loads of them. Sounds like you'll have a good show in the Summer and the bees will love them
