At last temperatures are inching up slowly, what a difference some sunshine can make to our mood and seeds needing warmer soils to germinate. 

It’s time to start taking young plants on windowsills outside to adjust to cooler temperatures, this process of ‘hardening off’ gets plants used to being outdoors. Repeat for 3 or 4 days before planting into open soil or pots.¬† Replace the windowsill space with another sowing of peas, greens or herbs. Another late season means any warm growing space out of the wind is a good thing!
