As soon as you get the plugs, plant them!! Most companies selling plugs will send them at the right time, they'll have started them at the correct time iyswim. If you've gone with Rocket Gardens then they should be a good size and don't come in pots anyway, so need planting with a day or two of arriving.

We're going to plant radish, carrot and tomato seeds this week and then the rest come in plugs from RG.

We just planted Carrots, Radishes and sunflowers (not to eat :giggle: ) Mum's buying us a second planter to do some other things in
If you go to the BBC website, they're doing a thing called 'Dig In' where they send free seeds. We got Squash, Carrots, Salad, Cougette and... something else that I forget lol

Send off for these viewtopic.php?f=3&t=39264&p=443693&hilit=free+seeds#p443693

i have just planted seeds for runner beans/drawrf beans and peas on my windowsill ready to go out later and early peas outside. I bought 4 pkts from Asda Livong (i think) for £4, and will get hundreds from them. They are so easy and lovely in summer when you are picking them. Tomatoes I tend to plant seeds and buy plugs and always have hanging baskets in with toms on the washing line :giggle: as well as in pots.

Seed potatoes are great to plant, and you can use your old compost/soil bags for them. Lettuce, rocket and herbs you could do indoors now.

Tory pm me your address and I will send you some seeds.
