This is the time of year to order or buy new vegetable seeds. Check with the section on this blogsite on sowing seeds to find out how long each type of seed lasts, and throw out those seeds that have past their viability. The final date is often wrong on the package, so when you buy new packets write on then their final date of viability.
Now you will have packets of previous seeds that are still viable, along with new varieties and replacement packages.
August is the time to start sowing many seeds in seed compost in seeds trays, preferably in a glass house, to be planted outside when the temperatures have warmed up.
