hi is it to late to sow hardy anuals, outside in cambridgeshire,and whats the best seeds for clay and shady soil. kind regards



I,d go ahead and sow them, they may be a little late but then the flowers will be later.
With this spring its probably been best to have waited anyway

I agree Pam. I have just today put in some half hardies and, with the sea, we are no colder than Cambs.
