Hi there
It as been a while since i have been here so hello again,
i have just bought a greenhouse and wanted to know what kind of seeds if any can i plant now for some nice flowers next year.



Sharon, I'm sorry that none of my cohorts from the UK signed on, but I will try to extrapolate from my more general knowledge. I would plant seeds of Rudbeckia hirta, and R. fulgida, Coreopsis grandiflora, Gaillardia aristata, G, grandiflora, Leucanthemum [Chrysanthemum] maximum, Echinacea species and hybrids, Eustoma grandiflorum, Scabiosa caucasica, S. columbaria, perennial Gypsophila, and Dianthus. The young plants of these should all be able to take light frost in an unheated greenhouse, and should be ready to plant out next spring. There are probably dozens of others, but I don't have experience with them, so I can't honestly recommend them. Some of the gardeners from the UK may blow raspberries at some of my suggestions, so I would also repeat the question, in case this one simply fell through the cracks. Hope this helps at least some! : )
