Planting in Spring

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

In early Spring fill largish pots with compost to start them off, cover them with the compost but if there are any shoots leave them exposed. Water sparingly and leave in a warmish place. Harden them off by placing them in a greenhouse in mid spring before planting out after the risk of frost has passed. .
