The past couple of years I've got my beds looking nice with a mix of annuals and perennials. But in May there are empty spaces that I'd like to get some early colour in. I've sewn winter pansies and walflowers that give me early spring colour, but I'd like to get some flowers in pots and beds to add some colour whilst waiting for it to be warm enough for my summer bedding plants.

Calendular, sweet pea and cornflowers sound like they might work. But how early can I get them flowering if I speed them up a bit indoors and in the polytunnel? I've seen some suggestions that I should sew now and over-winter them in pots in the polytunnel?
