In May I'll be planting and sowing all my vegetable plants from my 'Grow Your Own with Pippa Greenwood' selection, so that I can advise all my GYO-ers propely, but I've also been sowing a few new varieties of greenhouse crops such as chill peppers, sweet peppers and some greenhouse tomatoes and a selection of aubergines. In fact, I suppose it is the ingredients for a gorgeous ratatouille.
Don't forget that if you are doing some greenhosue crop sowing, or indeed are sowing seeds of tender annuals, it helps to give them a good start by pre-warming the compost (just to room or greenhouse temperature) and to ensure that you don't give them an icy drenching when you water them in, but instead leave a can of water in the greenhouse. It avoids nasty shocks!!
