They can be sown at this time of the year and brought through the winter. In fact I had planned to do that but in view of the weather we are having and the armies of slugs and snails it has given rise to I am going to wait to see what September brings. I am reluctant to provide fodder for them :-)

Some seeds require a cold period to ensure that they will be strong and healthy when they germinate... find a dry cold place (refrigerator) and leave them there til March or April...then start them...We are heading into the dark months and the shortening days and weakening sun aren't as good for the seedlings as it would be in spring. Nature's clock...is set for spring. lol. Good Luck.

I sow all seeds fresh. Some straight into the position I want them to grow or if likely to be eaten by something in a pot outside and protect the pot. This way you get stronger earlier plants without any of the problems of damping off.

My book recommends waiting until Jan/Feb to sow lupins under glass. As they have a hard seed coat, the seeds should be nicked or alternatively, soaked in water for 24 hours prior to sowing, to aid germination
