All my seeds were started late around April time barring my Leeks which were sown directly outside one day later than the recommended sowing time on the packet on 1st May.
I've been lazy with annuals this year but I have raised Corriander, Basil, Cobea, Sweetcorn, Beetroot, Leek, Candula and lettuce indoors as well as propagated basal stem cuttings and cuttings garden phlox, alpine phlox and penstemons none of which have had any special treatment besides my windowsill and a spray mister for watering. I covered the basil with a lid until they germinated, then took it off.
If there's one thing I've learnt about seeds, is don't get them too wet, less is more for tiny seedlings.
