Seeds are up

I've got some (hundreds) of stock seedlings and alpine starwberries, just starting to sprout their first true leaves - can anyone tell me when they should be ok in the mini greenhouse outside (they are in my living room at the moment).

Also just sown some snapdragons- could/should they go in the mini greenhouse once germinated? I want to start off some tomatoes, but I've run out of space!!

Could I sow sweet peas directly in the ground now or should I wait a bit? Is there anything special I should do, other than following the instructions on the packet and pinching out once they've got two/three sets of leaves? Thanks in advance

So if I put my gliadiolus in pots, can they be left outside in the pots over winter? If not, how about in the garage? There's no light in there whatsoever, but I guess that doesn't matter for dormant bulbs.....?

Brilliant, thank you both for your advice. Thanks also for tips about overwintering - I thought they could simply be left in the ground like daffodils...

I'm now very excited about planting some of my my bulbs this weekend!

Hello, I am a new gardner so this will probably be the first of many questions...

I have several bags of summer bulbs, which helpfully say 'plant January to June'. That is all. I now realise that it's not that simple and I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me when to plant outside, whether it's worth starting them off indoors and anything else I should do. The bulbs (actually some may be corms) are:




Lily (Oriental I think)

Should I be planting these now or do I need to wait a bit?? Thanks in advance for your help!
