      Thanks. Mostly I do, as does the research fund and the 'tree tax' which
      mitigates the use of paper.

      I think the drying and the sowing date are independent variables. The sowing
      date relates to the T-sum of the crop. Moisture conservation is going to be
      your best friend if there is real a dry summer.

      I think it is very sensible to have some spares in pots for later
      transplant. Let us know how you get on.
