Got the seeds but will leave them in their packets. I find when growing them early I tend to get spindly plants. Will wait for more daylight and warmth. 🍅🌞

Hosta. I suppose you could sow most things now if you've got a warmish spot, sometimes the plant companies do youtube videos and you might find some info. Are they the perennial Rudbeckias, they are quite tough once they get going, we've got a patch. My Dad used to love them as it reminded him of N America but he once grew the wrong ones here, the giant six foot ones! I've got some of those too, we call them Dad's daisies. wink

Sometimes the annual Thunbergias get called a similar name.

edit Had a little search around. I found this how to grow LINK

Last year I started from seed on warm windowsill in Jan. They started growing within two weeks. Had a brilliant crop grown outside from may , in tubs. A bit slow this year.
