Is it 'pea' time yet DD? Have mangetout and sugarsnaps I'm just itching to sow in loo rolls for planting in pots... :wub:

I'm waiting another month.

Daren't set foot on my plot yet - too wet and cold and it rained today!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Tempted to start stuff off this coming weekend. Got a nifty heated propogator being delivered and have a heated greenhouse... the temptation is almost crippling!

If you've got the facilities, there's no problem

You can start off chillies, peppers, tomatoes, aubergines etc., as you have somewhere to put them once grown. Some are tempted to start early then find they have nowhere to put the plants as it still too cold.

Brassicas are forbidden in heated propagators,  but you knew that.  ;)

The temptation has been to much for me, got early beets showing already ::) Will put small poly tunnel up on salad bed this week, with all this sunshine should warm the ground up lovely . hopefully in enough time to put beets out in a cpl of weeks and some early carrots under the same cover, see how the weather goes
