Start Sowing Early Seeds

If you would like to get ahead with early seed sowing start now using a Heated Propagator.

Tomatoes, Globe Artichokes, Celery, Early Cabbage and Cauliflower, Lettuce and Onions can all be started early with some heat and reasonable light levels.

As can some summer bedding plants - varieties that need a longer growing period include Busy Lizzies, Geraniums, Petunias and Nicotianas.

They will need to be kept at a temperature of 21ºC (70ºF), lightly cover the top of the seeds with a layer of Seed Compost. Water when the compost dries out. When shoots are 5cm-7.5cm (2in-3in) long transfer to permanent pots or hanging baskets.
