    Hi are your flowers to sow in June still available?

    I’m a calendula fan. Was planning on several varieties this year. Short ones started in pots then planted out. Fine. Tall ones straight in soil – fine for a bit then devoured by slugs. Trying to decide whether to start again with these (or others) in pots then plant out or to fill in gaps with other plants. Might resort to little notices stuck in the ground which say ‘This should have been a . . . ‘.

    Hi Ben, would you raise the seeds in modules in the polly tunnel or outside? I still have seeds left but no room to sow direct at the mo? Angi

      I generally sow in modules…it’s a good time to sow in modules as you can then use the plants in four weeks or so to plug any holes you may have around the plot.

        You raise them in the Polly tunnel , at this time of year, as aposed to the cold frame? Sorry to be so dim. Angi
