Early sowing of seeds - how early

Post by MOHAN SINGH » August 10th, 2016, 12:32 pm

The advantages of early sowing have been discussed many a times on this forum. However taking it a step forward on the practical side I want to ask when can be the earliest when we can start seeds. I have the following seeds with me which may please be advised when can I start the earliest :

Petunia Superbissima (T&M)
Petunia Daddy mixed (Panam)
Petunia different colours (self collected)
Pansy Swiss Giants
Daisy Pomponette
Phlox peppermint (T&M)
Phlox cherry caramel (T&M)
Nicotiana (T&M)
Heliotrope (T&M)
Dahlia fireworks (T&M)
Dahlia Figaro
Dahlia Pompon (T&M)
Snaps lucky lips (T&M)
Aster Duchess
Lobelia (T&M)

I had sown some superbissima and self collected petunias which are growing good sofar since a week. Please advise on other seeds.

Thanks a lot for the answer.

The same applies for pansy, phlox and lobelia. Read they need comparatively lower temps.
