    Thanks for that :-) Are they all direct sow ? I am always ‘weeding’ out my hardy annual seedling accidentally, and would get a higher hit rate if I grew in the greenhouse and then planted out. More work but that’s ok if the plants would cope with being transplanted to final growing positions?

      you can do that yes…though I wouldn’t do that with the larkspur and the ammi….they like a direct sowing.

      ammi, nigella and larkspur loath being disturbed…..but most of the rest can be started in pots. I usually do some direct sowing….then fill gaps with pots grown critters.
