I started growing from seed when I got my first garden. Love it and totally addictive. I do most of my sowing Spring to late Summer. I grow for the insects, so am trying to get a long flowering peroid and something of interest to them all through the year
I've sown hardy annuals at this time of year in the past but would go for the more bushier types of these as I've found things like corncockles and cornflowers get a bit leggy. I'm more into the biennials and perennials now, propagation has taught me a lot of patience.
You could sow some biennials now like Honesty, Sweet Rocket and Forget me nots, easy to germinate outside and grow on
Once you get into it, it's relatively easy and you get loads of plants! Can be a bit hit and miss as so much of it depends on the weather, but don't let that put you off.Be a shame if your greenhouse was empty all Winter.
