Growing 'Indoors' or 'Under glass' in April
This is a month for getting overwintered plants started off for another growing year.
Note: As with most advice on gardening the advisors location will often influence the content of the advice.
To alleviate this problem I have produced this chart indicating how you can make adjustments to the timing of events as seen in this website.
I hope you find this useful! .......Tg
