    Default Late start

    With lots of DIY projects going on simultaneously, I've only just realised I haven't sown any seeds for this year. Last year I'd already sown them on the 1st of March. This year, the warmer weather reminded me to start early but I'd quickly forgotten.

    Anyone else behind like me?

    I plan to start this weekend and hope I can catch up.

    All i've sown is some onions and leeks under cover back in January, and some spinach and radish outside last weekend. It's still early for all the tender stuff, I won't be sowing anything else until April.

    The only veg I have sown so far is onions, tomato, peppers and cabbage, lettuce is growing the greenhouse where they get sown every four weeks or so, I will start sowing other veg from mid April onwards

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    I've been delayed in the past by various things but find later sowings produce stronger plants.

    I got round to sowing seeds at the weekend in my propagator. Smaller selection compared to last year but more plants. I should have started two months ago but we shall see what happens this year.
