As usual I saved a lot of seeds from last years plants in my garden. As usual I did nothing with them, so I through them on a bare patch of garden. I am now inundated with seedlings and small plants. Should I pot these up for next year or should I just let them grow and see what happens over the winter. If I do pot them up should they be kept in the greenhouse over winter?



do both!
pot some and leave some, obviously the ones that wont survive the winter you should pot up
sounds like a good experiment and fun

It depends on what they are, Sadie - if they are hardy perennials, then they'll be OK outside. If they are tender plants - and you'll know which those are - then you'll have to pot them up, won't you! (like their parents...)
