Large plug plants

Maybe a ladies hand is more gentle Perki, no disrespects😀 I have spit those tiny but but you do need to be very gentle, don't ram them into the new compost to tightly, leave the compost a bit lose, you will have to pot them up anyway, they won't be big enough to plant out and it's too soon,  

they may be a bit sparse the ones you buy are not that compact. Next year, have a go at growing some yourself, you can do it your kitchen.

I turned one of my veg patches into a bed last year and covered it with those, didn't mind the colours, it looked nice all mixed.

I buy all my seeds from eBay, never let down, what isn't a good idea is to buy seeds from China.

Tomato seeds and seedlings

Best to cut the gro bag in half and turn each bit on its end bucket shaped.

Am i doing something wrong

I sow tomato seeds indoors, they are still in the conservatory as small plants, no way could I put them out in the GH yet.  They will be potted on once more and planted out in the GH on the 1st May. 

Parsnips are sown on the 1st May, with runner beans, parsnips direct, beans indoors.

Absolutely, the thought of a Bogeyman, whatever that was! Coming for me, I would pull the covers up and pretend😀

6acres!! My dream would be to hire a gardener.  I would like a walled garden, would look totally out of place here, and I would like to grow fruit trees, equally out of place here.
