FLOWERS

In the Greenhouse / Indoors

Antirrhinum needs a long growth period before flowering so sow in a propagator now for good results.
• Sow Begonia, Geranium (Pelargonium) and Dianthus (Carnations/Pinks) indoors now as they are slow to flower from seed.
Laurentia (Isotoma) make fantastic container plants for the summer.
• Sow Lobelia for bedding, containers and hanging baskets.
Pansies can be started off indoors now, for a colourful summer display.
Sweet Peas can be started in gentle heat now.
• Try growing something exotic to lift winter blues – why not grow the Bird of Paradise plant (Strelitzia reginae) from seed?

 

FRUIT & VEGETABLES

In the Greenhouse / Indoors

• For the show bench, start sowing Celeriac and Celery now in a heated propagator.
Herbs are easy to grow on your windowsill and provide fresh greens all year round.
• Sow exhibition onion seeds to give the bulbs time to grow as big as possible. Use varieties such as Bunton’s Showstopper and Ailsa Craig.
• Order rhubarb crowns now ready for planting in the spring. Or if you’d like to grow your own rhubarb from seed, start them off now in a heated propagator.
Salad leaves and spinach can be grown on a bright windowsill indoors for tasty early greens.
• Order your potatoes.

In the Cold frame / Under Cloches

• Try growing strawberry plants under cover to get an early crop this summer.

Direct Sow Outdoors

• Sow hardy Broad Bean ‘ Aquadulce Claudia’ outdoors (if the ground isn’t frozen).

Plant Outdoors

• It’s surprisingly easy to grow your own mushrooms – try growing a mushroom log in your garden or alternatively grow some indoors using mushroom kits.
