Some of the herbs need to be started early, especially the ones that germenate slowly, are very small and take a long time to get going – like basil, thyme, chamomile etc.  


Oregano is a problem too. I always seem to get the wrong kind, so I am trying several and will watch over them better to find out which is best this time. 

Many people start tomatoes and peppers early, but I don’t have enough space, warmth and lighting for them, so I will buy plants from others who do. 

Later I’ll sow a number of salads, brassica, etc for planting out in May, and June, and a couple weeks after that I’ll start pumpkins, maize, etc for planting out in June. Hopefully everything will be just the right size when the weather is perfect for planting out in the crop circles.
