    Still plenty time to start in pots, if thats what you wish to do.

    Probably best in pots as they'll germinate faster than outdoors.

    Yeah I would probably get them started in pots, especially with the weather we are having at least you get a little bit of a head start. <span id="sample-permalink">http://www.alisonpike.com/blog/?p=231 if you need any help on how to sow them. <span>

  • Stand "toilet roll tubes" into a 6 portion modular tray,,gives roots a great start as they like the depth, then plant the whole tube when ready,,Tube should dis-integrate with time also the cardboard helps to retain moisture

    I grow them in toilet roll tubes too.

    Thanks for ur advice didnt have enough tubes so they r in 4" pots happy gardeningimage

  • No wish to disagree with anyone, but if it were me I would sow them in-situ at this time of year....it is May in just over a week, after all!
