First Seedlings of 2017


I make a habit of sowing some seeds on the first day of the New Year, each year. This year it was plum “tiger” tomatoes. They look like they’re doing okay so far – I’ll be potting them on when they’ve got their first true leaves.

  1. I used to find my problem with early sowings was that, after a warm spell, we’d then get frosts again and the new growth was scorched. Later sown plants were all right as I could keep them in the propagator. How do you find that?

    1. I tend to keep things under cover or indoors until all risk of frost has passed. This gives me other problems, as watering is more effort (having to lift off cloches etc) but it means things get started earlier.
