Patrick Whitefield Wednesday, 12th March 2014 It's nearly the end of March and I haven't sown a seed yet. I reckon that here in the south of England early April is about right. I used to rush to get them in early so as to make the harvesting season longer. But over the years I've learnt that a more relaxed attitude often gives better results.Seeds sown too early, often in a warm spell, can suffer a check if a cold spell follows, and this check affects the plants' vigour throughout their life. Or they just struggle with generally low temperatures.
