    Base heat...........I have a heated mat that I got from the pet shop that has just assisted Komatsuna seeds to appear in 4 days.  Is that what you mean

    The conservatory does suffer from the sun only really shining in from early morning to just after mid day as the garden faces East

    I will delay till March.

    One seed supplier and a book i have say that January is Ok but it seems a bit to early to me mainly for the reasons that you state

    Great advice and I will take it .

  • my local nursery does a better job than me.  I normally visit them early May and choose a couple of their plants. I did sow chillies in January and looked after them for 5 long months before they were ready to go outside. Not really worth it.

    I sort of gave up and just spread all of the seeds onto the soil in a 6 inch wide pot and b***er me they have all sprouted and I have had to give 10 plants away to leave me with 10 healthy ones.
