I was wondering if now is the time to sow seeds for perennials to flower next year
I'm thinking of lupins, foxglove, aquilega, phlox etc?

Would love to sow primulas too

I have space in top of our garage, its a dormwr roof with velux windows and is quite warm. Would this environment suffice?

Any other information or advice is welcome too

That would be perfect once you have a space ready for them to be planted out in spring.

Once they have germinated and have been pricked out into small pots, your young plants will do much better (and be easier to look after) if you can keep them in a sheltered place outside.
