Oh my, you are going to have a spectacular garden! I read the labels on you seeds, and was surprised to see how many are the same varieties we have, and that I plant. We don't do parsnips, and celeriac won't live here in this part of Texas, but the carrots, turnips, parsley, dill, squash, etc. are ones we are familiar with.
Do let us know how your garden thrives!

Thanks all, this is just part of my veg orders for this year, I have another 5 orders to come yet from various places. I did all my flower seed shopping last Autumn, and my dried flower orders before Christmas...I am well and truly swamped.

But sowing time is always fun...

It's a good day when you get the rototiller out of the shed where it's been for 7 months, clean the spark plug, and away it goes!
On the seed front, I got £30-odd worth of seeds for a tenner plus £2 p&p in an offer from T&M.
My long cukes, which are listed at £4.99 for FOUR seeds, were £1!

I grow "White Gem" parsnips, because, not only do they perform well, but they're open pollinated.
Leave one to go to seed, and you'll have 1000s of seeds for next year.
In fact, some of the seeds blew off, landed on the ground and have taken.
