seedling compost

I have used Jacks magic recently and found it to be much better than others that I have tried. Miracle grow multipurpose that I bought earlier this season has no substance and dries out quickly and then is hard to re wet.

Looking at the weather forecast on Countryfile last night- I think the garden will slow down at the end of this week!

Thanks for all the ideas so far. I'll have a look at what plugs I can find and maybe think about poppy seeds for after the primroses finish.

Thanks ginagibbs, I was thinking about primroses- I need to find out when you can set seeds so that would be cheaper (there is quite a big space to fill).

I have recently moved house and have a wild area that is on the edge of a lane. It gets early morning sunshine and seems to be quite good soil (under the nettles, ivy and docks) what wild flowers can I grow on good soil and can I sow seeds now or is it best to wait until spring?

Thanks for all ideas
