I'm a newbie, last year we moved to a house with a lovely south facing garden and it also has a greenhouse and vegetable plot. Feels like all my dreams have come true.
I'm trying to get organised now for next year. This year I've had a go at growing all typres of flowers and vegetables, but I alway feel like I'm just a bit late with sowing my seeds. I'm interested in growing herbs, hanging basket plants, carrots, peas, betroot and parsnips. Maybe next year try potatoes.
So to get organised for next year, I have a folder for my self and trying to make a calander/ diary to inform me as to when to buy seeds and when different seeds need sowing buy.
When do you buy all or most of your seeds? I'm a bit worried to buy too early and find the seeds don't do so well, how good are the sow by dates?
Anything else you can think of to get me organised for the coming year is appreciated. I live in the North East, any advice about planting here and hardy plants alsi welcome.
Thanks in advance
