Can I really plant these peas and carrots so early?
This is my first year growing much veg. I have raised beds filled with a mixture of top soil and local authority green waste compost, with some of my own garden compost added in. Two of the seed packets - Pea Twinkle and Carrot Early Nantes 2 - say that I can sow under cloches in February. Is this likely to produce decent results or am I better off just waiting a bit? I'm planning on sowing in batches through the spring.
I live in southern Scotland, five miles from the sea. The site is exposed but the beds are behind a deep windbreak. Our last frost is usually in early May.
