    All veg we plant from seed, but I might try plugs for vegetables one of these days

    I only buy flowers as plugs. Two reasons - I'm convinced I can't grow them from seed (irrational) and by the time I need to sow them my greenhouse is already full of veg seedlings.

    I just canít afford to buy a lot of plugs and to be honest I love the sight of lots of little seedlings popping up. I put in 125 broad beans at the end of November and 90 have so far come up, how much would that cost if they were plugs? The seeds cost less than £1 in the allotment shop. I intend to fill the gaps this weekend with more seed.
