Talkback: How to sow seeds indoors

Posted: 02/05/2012 at 23:12

This will depend to some extent on the seeds, some hardy annuals will be happy to go out to the green house now, if you have small tender seedlings they may need a few more weeks of protection. What you do not want to  do is give them a shock as this will set them back.

Can you say which seeds you have sown?

Excitable Boy someone recommended fleece to me last year, raises the temperature a little, I used it last August when it was so cold  and it did help.

I have also sown hundreds of Amaranthus how big do they get?

I have just found some dahlia collarette seeds, is it too late?

Excitable Boy do you not have any fleece? Having looked at the predicted weather for May I may need to make some more fleece bags.

I have been out in the garden, so cold. I could not put any dahlias in the ground it seemed too cruel.

Last year  I liberated some thrift seeds from a neglected garden, they are now quite large plants. Has anyone else liberated seeds?

Shed Theft

Sandra this mindless theft and vandalism is so upsetting. I do feel for you.

I had a neighbour who did not lock his car, he did disconnect the battery, on the basis that the cost of replacing smashed windows was more expensive. Has anyone on you site lost a lot, is it worth the theives coming back? Will you have a sense if someone uses your shed for other activities?

what are these?
