Hi all, living in the north of england the weather has been horrible, and most of the seeds i have sown have eitheir died or just not botherd. So i was wandering do i have to stick to the packets on when to sow seeds or can re-sow, any help would be great.

If you have sown seeds in the open ground that it has not been good-sometimes it is better to start them off in trays or modules

As for whether you can sow now-that depends on what it is you want to grow-so a bit more info would help?

What to do with the Lavender seedlings?

You will need to pot them to get them to a reasonable size to plant out-3 inch pots will be fine

They grow fairly quickly but it is probably going to be best to plant them in their final positions in the spring and they will flower next year

Protect the pots from freezing- that will damage the roots- but the plants themselves are hardy and will be fine for many years in my experience

I was just reading that most people would have to stop once when running 100 metres-still think I could win gold in running for a bus.

I want  fluorescent yellow shoes
