Seeds to Sow in January

It’s a great time to plant vegetable seeds including summer brassicas such as cabbage and cauliflower onions and peppers

It’s also a perfect time to start some hardy annual bedding plants such as Sweet Peas, Antirrhinums, Stocks, or perennials such as Begonias or Delphinium. However, it can take a couple of years to reach flowering size, though it’s well worth their slow start in the long run.
