Looking at the labels I see that it already over 4 weeks since I made my first sowings.
Of the 12 pots all but one are showing some germination (even the leftover dried supermarket chilli seed has produced a seedling)
The one failure was some several years out of date onion seed
|Look Lobelia!!! Who says only grow veg?|
I have started outdoor sowings with a raised bed of alliums at home. In addition - as I have so many seed potatoes I have planted out a short row of (reputedly frost tolerant) Epicure at the plot ( 17/3/17).
Today I'm going to do a greenhouse sowing of peas, leeks and lettuces to add to the broad beans already sown but not yet emerged. It won't be long before the greenhouse is bursting at the seams. But it also won't belong before outdoor sowings commence in earnest. Come April it's a free for all.
