Too early to plant - NE Scotland?

Living where you do ,you will need to stake broad beans, I put canes all along the row then tie in with string as they grow. They still blow about but at least you have something to tie them too.

I sowed some that need the winter frost to germinate but apart from that there is no point in starting now, by the time you can plant them out, which will be end of May or even June,depending on where you live,  they will be leggy, need repotting a few times, have you got a warm place with lots of space, to keep them when they are all in big pots.

Most of mine will be sown in mid March, with the exception of Lobelia which I do in mid Feb, the cosmos even later, nearer to end of March and even sowed some in June for late flowering.
