I'd sow them all now. Well drained compost, grit on top, leave them outside in the shade. Some will germinate soon, others in the spring. Bring any that haven't germinated into into a cold greenhouse in January. This is more for you than them, it's easier to keep an eye on germination. No heat is required for any of these.

I'm not impresses with taste of the ones you buy. A bit like earth. But I was given the packet of seeds. And I have to sow seeds. They need more water than tomatoes, won't bother again

Hi all.

I'm having a day out. On the train at 10am. down to Cambridge to the Botanic garden. Haven't been for years. Used to go there as a child and take a picnic. That was when you could walk in for free and picnic on the grass. 


Welcome to the potting shed
