What are you sowing now?

Hey everyone.

Very quick question here...What are you sowing in the greenhouse just now? Or, if your not sowing, what can be sown now?

    Now is a good time to sow biennials.

    I'm about to sow native foxgloves and some other biennials from leftover seed which may still be viable.

    My project for the weekend is to go round the garden digging up (for growing on) self seeded foxgloves and evening primrose which pop up all over the place. Later I shall plant them in more appropriate positions.

    It's too hot in the greenhouse for anything I sow.

    I find to start plants in the greenhouse then move them up to the allotment rather than sow seeds direct up there ( other than carrots and parsnips ), anyway in the nursery i have just start some more beetroot, baby leeks, and tenderstem broc.

    Maybe it will too hot in your greenhouse Oakley Witch, but I live in the middle of a wood and my greenhouse is in partial shade for much of the day, so that didn't occur to me.

    Ahh, ok. Thats fine then cause one is in full sun, other is in the shade of a tree so it is cooler than the first one. Just picked up some Foxglove Parviflora 'Milk Chocolate' which looks interesting and some white Delphiniums 'Galahad' Its raining here so I will be in the greenhouse this afternoon image
