I don't have a greenhouse and the coldframes are stuffed with overwintering pretties, so April's my main month for sowing. I hadn't quite realised quite how much there is to do this month until I decided to put all of April's packets into one box, so I can just pick it up and go whenever I need them. The main reasons why there's so many are:
- I use lots of different leaves for salads and have a large wodge there at the back ready for successional sowing
- I've gathered quite a few different packets of various native flowers together during the clear out of my main seed tins ready for some light guerrilla gardening
- I've decided to grow my own Nigella seeds for curries and bread making, plus lots of different Basils for pesto and pasta sauces
- I always have too many different seeds anyway
It looks like little and often is the only way I'm going get through that lot. Wish me luck!
