I generally wait until April to start sowing seed and this year will be the same. My little plastic green house is great and comes in handy. This little 'tent' system is cheap; it cost about £10 and keeps plants warm and protected. I'll then harden them off and get them into the ground by late May / early June.
Other seed of course will be sown direct into the prepared beds in May / June.
This year I'm upping my sowing of potatoes, onions and salad plants. Other plants I always sow:
mainly because they're easy to grow and generally give me little trouble.
I'm focusing quite a bit on salad plants this year and will grow a variety of lettuces for colour, shape/texture and taste. Another busy year for sure!
