2015, here we come!

Every year I get the same feeling, Christmas has gone New Year almost upon us. So, let's fast track January and get to the end of February when I start to sow, indoors, my French Marigolds. When does your  'new year' start?

    When the snowdrops start pushing through. I love snowdrops, I'm trying to divide them just after flowering and plant them everywhere where I have hostas and late flowering plants.

    First week of Feb for me, which is when the windowsill propagator comes out ....although I will enjoy the snowdrops and hellebores in the meantime.

  • I want to say mine's already started as I've excitedly done all the planning and ordered some container plants today (image)...but in case that doesn't count then it'll be with the seed sowing in Jan.

    Normally start off alot of tall sweet peas but have dispensed with them this year - only doing trailing s/peas, snaps and achillea in Jan
