Monthly what to sow guide

We get asked on an almost daily basis, “what seeds can I sow?”
So although it is a contentious one to give advice on, we thought it might be helpful to document what we are planning on sowing each month, flowers and veg. To let you guys see what we’re up to and to hear our thoughts. Now obviously we’re all in different areas, with different temperatures, rainfall amounts, different frost zones and even, in different seasons. So it’s really important that you have a think about your situation and how my experiences do and don’t relate to you. After all, there’s no point sowing seeds if they just won’t germinate in your situation, or worse, the little seedlings can’t cope and die.

To help with this, I always highlight things to think about, like frost dates, whether the seeds and plants need heat or light. Look out for terms like heat, indoors, direct sowing, undercover, and of course frost dates.
