Absolutely fantastic gardeners article. Can I just add:
Buying Plant Seed – Plan Ahead
When buying seeds it is easy to get carried away by thoughts of flower beds filled with row upon row of glorious colour. Do not forget that the plants need to be raised in frost free and light conditions until as late as May when the weather warms up sufficiently to plant them in the garden. Consider carefully how much space will be available, particularly in April when the tiny seedlings will have increased in size considerably

Hi Paul,
Youre exactly right.  In fact, frost-sensitive plants dont go outside in Calgary until after May 24!!!  or at least, not without the possibility of protection.  Thats why Ive only started the slowest-growing plants so far.  But each week Ill start more so check back!   What are you growing from seed?
