I'm new to gardening and have a lot to learn. I'm inclined to prefer wildflowers and pollinators in a wildlife-friendly garden space.
I want to sow seeds for planting out but don't know what time of year to do it, what compost to use, techniques etc! I've got lots of seeds bought, and the foxglove camelot rose packet says to start sowing indoors but other sites tell me differently. I also have verbena, echinacea, stocks to sow.
I also need advice on what compost is best to use, and should I use a vermiculite, grit, etc..
Any advice or tips for best sowing results or Do's and Don'ts for a novice but enthusiastic gardener would be really welcomed!
