When the best time to start seed growing in greenhouse 


  • It depends what you're growing and how many of each ........ and how much space you have to bring them on ........... and the date of the last frost this spring  image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Dove is right, even if you have a heated propagator lack of light is a big issue at this time of year. Then when you have raised seedlings you need space to grow them on to healthy plants that can be put out.

    You could start Broad beans in modules in an unheated greenhouse but in mild areas you could sow direct anyway if your ground is not too wet. Some people are sowing Pepper & chilli seeds now because they take time to germinate but like Dove I am waiting for now.

  • You can even start now in a greenhouse where I live (Sweden) if using a hotbed. But plant things that don't need much light, like spinache, lettuce, radishes etc. 

  • Thank you
