    can I grow most of these seeds H in modules and take care of them in a cold greenhouse ? am useless at thinking how things will look before they have grown and find it a lot easier to place a plant , if that makes sense

      I know exactly what you mean..I would direct sow the Californian Popys as they don’t like disturbance…but you should be fine with the rest. :)

        I got away with sowing Cal Poppies in modules, the 6 to half a tray size but I was very late sowing. By far best were the self sowers which found their way up between Vipers Bugloss and a Campanula. None of my own work :-)

      …or of course you can sow in straight lines…this makes it easy to see what’s a weed and what is not!
