If you have some more seeds, I would sow them mid March, longer, warmer days, they wont grow leggy and will be much stronger.

You cant plant them out in the garden until May! Have you got room to keep potting them on, you will need a lot of space for the next 3 months growth.

No point in planting runner beans till April, they cant go outside till mid May At least.

You cant grow carrots in modules, they need to go straight in the open ground. Its nowhere near warm enough for that.

Much to early for cucumbers unless you have a well heated greenhouse.

They are usually on the news when they want to distract us from some more serious issues.

We loved our Roma. This year I am trying the San Marzano.

I am also growing green zebra, sungold, gardeners delight and marmande. These were all given to me via the seed swap. Tiny Tim I already had.

I took one of the top gardener/chefs advise and didnt keep giving them loads of water and feed. The more water given  apparantly, the more they will only taste of water.

I still have some in the feezer from a super bumper crop.

Cheap plants at Aldi!

I wouldnt buy annual plugs, far, far to early. The perennials will be ok if you can pot them up and keep in a cool greenhouse or coldframe for a month or two.

Chionodoxas and aconites - advice?

Charlie, how do you get gladioli to flower before daffs and hyacinths, I dont plant mine until April, they are late summer flowering here. Do you keep them indoors in pots?

Beautiful Denise, there is a lovely one in Cornwall if you ever get down this way.

Growing brassicas on the same soil

Grow them there every 4th year. You could grow broad beans or peas on the alternate years.

To stop cabbage whites laying eggs on cabbages, the mesh needs to be minute, They can get through small mesh, you need really fine stuff.
