    Hi, later this week I will sow leeks seeds into a couple of 5" pots in a cold greenhouse.

    later in the month i will start off a dozen or so shallots in modules, also in the cold greenhouse.

    I will be sowing leek seeds later this week in modules.

    I only have a cold frame and not a greenhouse, so when people are saying that they are sowing in a cold greenhouse, does this mean that will I be ok to sow seeds in modules in a cold frame?

    Hi,
    I have sown onions this month, although reading the RHS link Fi put at the beginning, it suggests sowing broad beans and small carrots? I was not planning on sowing them yet?
    What do other grapes think?

    Broad beans will be fine (although sown in modules not direct yet) so long as they're one of the hardier types. Carrots - hmmm, bit early if you ask me but you could sow some in a bucket and keep it under cover for an early crop. No chance of getting them to germinate this early outside though.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    So far I have sown onions, tomatoes, chillies and sweet peppers. I have also bought my spuds, pentland javelin and maris peer and am currently chitting them. The onions have been germinated inside and are currently in the cold kitchen waiting to move to the unheated greenhouse, which will probably be in the next day or so.

    Well my seeds finally arrived, so as soon as the chilli's and tomatoes are germinated, into the propagator go the following:

    Thai Basil
    Lemon Grass

    Hi there, just a suggestion because lemon grass seed can be a bit hit and miss ( I know I've tried it), you can root lemon grass very easily from the shop bought stuff in a glass of water.
