    @Mike Allen it’s so hard to hold back, isn’t it? I was going to wait until next weekend to sow my chilli seeds, but I think I’ll do them this weekend instead....

      I sowed my chillie seeds before the new year. Mine seem to take forever to grow and set fruit!

        I'll be sowing onions this weekend in the greenhouse.
        I use those divided trays and sow three or four seeds in each section, then plant out in late March to mid April depending on weather.

          I have just bought my first seeds ever to plant up in my salad bed. I have purchased spring onions, radish and lettuce ready to sow outdoors March/April depending on weather.

                It self-seeds with me but quite late in the season so it is not a problem. I let one or two self seeders develop if they are in the right place. Last year they never got big enough to flower but the year before they were lovely for a very late fiery show.

                  I'm in this club. :) Despite of loads of seeds bought or received with gardening magazines, came for peas - wanted tall variety:

                    Got myself some Alderman peas and White Casper pumpkin seeds from eBay - first attempts at growing peas and pumpkins so I didn't want to spend too much. Not quite seeds, but same principle, I also bought some Bocking 14 root cuttings. Only ordered 6 and they've sent 12.

                    You know that voice of common sense in your head that tells you that you've got enough seeds ?

                    Well I sowed my chillies a week or so ago and the Anahiem germinated almost immediately. No signs of life from the Bulgarian seeds. So that voice was overruled and Ive just bought a pack of Jalapeno as insurance.... and a pack of 7 pod congo ….. and a pack of Bulgarian carrot chilli … and a pack of cherry bomb

                    oooopppps

                      Bought a packet of Physalis, inca berry, cape gooseberry, on the way home tonight.
                      Thinking of planting quite a few plants on the allotment and maybe making some wine, could be interesting.:biggrin:

                        You must have a fair collection of species Gladioli now.

                        @longk I've now got 10 spring flowering species, 3 in the garden and the others in the greenhouse. The greenhouse ones are just coming into flower.

                          Hi @NigelJ do you grow G. flanaganii outside? I used to grow it and it seemed to do quite well. I'm not sure if I still have it as one pot of glads has lost its label and didn't flower last year...
