Default Would anyone care to remind us idiots, when to plant seeds?

Books and seed packets are usually good guides -- often better than
other gardeners, whose conditions may vary widely.

But this would require me to remember to get the packets out and read
them, my state of memory makes that almost impossible, whereas I read
this newsgroup every day!

I get all the seed packets and put them in order of the suggested sowing
time, earliest at the front etc. Then when you feel that conditions are
all right for the first lot, sow the first few, and as the season
progresses, sow the rest as you get the time etc, and hopefully you won't
be far out.

It works for me:-)

But do you have my memory?

Or lack of!
