Horticultural aide memoire Sow spring bedding
Wallflowers, forget-me-nots, sweet williams, foxgloves and a range of perennials can be sown this month. It’s a small investment for a large reward. Find a bit of spare ground in the kitchen garden or nursery and cultivate it as a seedbed. Dribble water from a can along the base of the drill for better germination. Sow the seed as individuals: it takes a little longer, but your patience will be rewarded. When the seedlings are through, pull them up bodily, grade them for size and transplant the best to another plot, perhaps between fruit bushes. Little room is needed.
