Dobbies seed sale

Options
Popped into Dobbies today and they have a half price seed sale and i really want to buy some seeds but i don't know what to get and i think i'm going to end up missing out and paying full price next year. I can't plant anything in the ground so does anybody have good ideas of seeds that i should buy that can be planted in pots and isn't going to cost me a fortune in pots either - too many restrictions?!?!

    Vegetables or flowers is the obvious first question.

    If vegetables, most can be sewed in pots, with the exception of root crops, although maybe even these are worth a try if you have deep enough pots.

    Al flowers (I think) would be OK to sew indooors in trays, or in those wee cells, which are better as they cause less root damage when the seedlings are potted on.

    Happy growing !

    Just as an aside to this i've noticed that dobies winter onion sets are 50% more expensive than they were last year!.

    Can't for the life of me work out why that would be.

    Now they are owned by Tesco that's just the sort of thing to expect.

    Squash, salad greens, chillis and toms are easy to grow in pots and look really nice (but toms and chillis work well with seeds squeezed from fruit!). Wilkinsons have 75% off their seeds so check there too.
