Hi there

I live in South East Scotland (near the sea) and my dear Dad's addage was never to plant bedding plants until last weekend of May. However, due to global warming we don't seem to get the air frosts we used to do and of course places like B&Q etc are selling us bedding plants earlier and earlier (I think based on the usually warmer South of England temperature).

The other day I bought a box of what looks like lovely double begonia tubers which will look lovely (I hope) in some pots. I have one of these mini greenhouses with the plastic zip up outer cover and 3 shelves. Do you think OK to start them off middle to end of May or should I leave them later or even do them earlier?
