Start sowing seeds after the last day of frost in the UK

We often get asked at Growseed when is the best time to sow our seeds, or we have missed a sowing window in January! So we thought we would compile some handy .pdf downloads for when to start sowing seeds. The time varies from region to region we have also taken the average last frost date in each of the regions to callculate the best time to start sowing.

Please note exact locations may vary by 7 days or so depending on where you live and you will know your local climate better than us! These are just guides to give a little helping hand to those who need it.
