to be honest i'm not sure , I want to surprise my partner with lots of different plants for the numerous pot's and baskets , i'm the fruit and veg guy and she buys all the pretty flowery plants , I love the plants but she usually picks them,.so I think things like lobelia ,pansies .. not sure.. pretty ones with nice flowers , I promise I will take more notice this year, I think i'll just go to garden centre and buy packets of pretty looking ones, ok thx anyway

Hi there , never grown plants from seed before ,what type of plants would you recommend to start from seed for patio pots and baskets is it too late/early to sew I have an allotment and greenhouse, thought i'd save a few bob growing some plants we usually buy from markets and d.i.y shops , is it simply get seeds from shop read packet ? not really explaining this well am I ! is it the same principle as say growing tomatoes/courgettes etc i.e seed in compost, keep warm ... thx
