Hi Snoodle.

no heat in a cold GH. 

Get a cold frame for the seeds if you want to heat the GH

I lke to sow when the plants shed seed. When you're buying seed this depends on the seed company selling fresh seed.

http://theseedsite.co.uk/

Lots of info on this site but not all seeds are covered. I would sow hostas when ripe and leave cold over winter. Cold frame or cold GH is good. I used to leave them all outside but everything seems so much wetter no sow I have them under cover. well drained compost and cover with grit.

Germination mostly happens in spring though sometimes it's very quick when seed is fresh

Chiltern are good and Plant World. Also Derry Watkins who does a fresh seed list

Wildflower meadow not growing!

A good buttercup year Dove. it must be all the rain. But they're over now. Yellow rattle was in charge for a while but the don't make such a good photo.  The next dominant species will be Centaurea nigra, lesser knapweed.

Wildflower meadow not growing!

I reckon a big problem for those trying to establish wildflowers is not appreciating the difference between an annual wild flower mix and a perennial grass meadow or other type of planting

Anyone good with tricky seeds

I think they like a bit of a chill Edd, I sow them in a cold GH while the nights are still chilly. Maybe they were too wet. A water tray sounds a bit OTT
