Good luck Gemma, I always find this time of year exciting and cold, bright days like we're having at the moment are perfect to get some of the hard work done which keeps you nice and warm (as well as burning off any Christmas 'excesses'!)
The cold frame sounds like an excellent idea - I find mine indispensible and would give that a high priority!
Hi Mark 1963
I start my Begonia seeds on Boxing Day 26th Dec in a heated propagator.
Do I get a prize ? or perhaps bragging rites !!!
Regards and a happy New Year
