Don’t let cold days and dark nights  stop you sowing and growing this winter, says Kris

Sowing in small batches is key to making the most of available windowsill space if you want to keep growing through winter

Windowsill growing tips

Fill small trays away from the windowsill where spillage and mess can be more easily tidied.

Be organised when sowing a variety of seeds. Label each pot before moving on to the next!

The Garland super 7 heated propagator is perfect for windowsill, making efficient use of space. Keep vents closed until germination, but lift misted lids regularly to check that the compost has not dried out.
