Looking at my sowing plan there are brassicas that need sowing now and once germinated can happily go out into an unheated greenhouse, that's if it survives Fridays storms!
Dobies - Cabbage Romanov F1 - Sow By 2024
Premier Seeds Direct - Durham Early - Sow By 2020
Normally I go for Westlands Seed Compost but TESCO have not had it in yet, but what I do have in my sowing store is a bag of Miracle-Gro Multipurpose Compost which I spent some time a few days ago sieving to get the lumps and friable dross out of it to get something more akin to seed compost. I also have a sack of Dalefoots Wool Compost for seeds and a Carbon Gold Biochar Seed Compost.
For these sowings I have decided to mix equal measures of the 3 of them and see what happens.
Last year I didn't have any Brussels Sprouts for Christmas and I'm determined to make sure I have some this year so looking at the seeds in my box and what's in date and just out of date I have decided on growing the following:-
Mr Fothergills - Evesham Special - Sow By 2020
Mr Fothergills - IGOR F1 - Sow by 2024
Mr Fothergills - Brest F1 - Sow by 2020
In the last nine years I have never been able to grow Cauliflowers as magnificent as I did that first year I got my plot and basically had no idea what I was doing! Hopefully 2022 is going to be a great year and I'm really looking forward to growing the De Purple F1
Mr Fothergills - Amsterdam F1 - Sow By 2022
Mr Fothergills - De Purple F1 - Sow By 2025
Thompson & Morgan - All Year Round - Sow By 2021
