Cosmos and Cauliflower.
After the strenuos work in the east bed yesterday I decided to sow some of my seeds and it was very frosty here this morning so not really good for outdoor work. All this activity with propogators convinced me to buy one when shopping at Hombase a week ago, I bought a Stewart one at £37:00 stg that can hold 2 seed trays and this morning I sowed my first seeds in cell trays and now hopefully they are on their way to germination. Both trays are sown with 2 seeds per cell so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
The Cosmos that I sowed is Seashells Red and I plan to sow more later I'll have a good display of flowers over long period of time and will sow some seeds direct in late April or May.
Cauliflower is one of the vegetables we most frequently use and although I tried them through plants that I bought last year they weren't very successful as they seemed to be damaged by slugs or snails so any tips how to prevent damage would be appreciated.
