The gazanias and petunias have germinated. Sown Rudbeckia "Tiger Eye" and "Cherry Brandy", Swan River Daisies and Verbena "Dwarf Jewels".

2 Sweet Peas of the 36 I sowed on the 7th have germinated in the last day or two. Hope the others follow soon.

Well if I were you I would bring seed packet back to shop where you bought or send it to seed company for a refund the seed is guaranteed to germinate after that its up to you to keep them growing

Cody, think I'll sow aubergines and chillies on the radiator

They would be better off in seed compost...

I'd never heard of Jatropha podatrica Mark so googled it, what a strange plant,  have you grown it before?  What about Monarda, how long does take to get to flowering size and is it reasonably easy from seed?

Mark 499

No I haven't grown it before but it looks an interesting plant.

As for Monarda, never grown it from seed before so will have to wait & see.

Laura Corin

I grew Monarda from seed last year and it was really easy - they are now clumping up nicely in the beds around my patio.

Can I ask a question please. I'm new to growing my own. I started last spring and learnt a lot in my first season. I started planting seeds this weekend in window propagators but I was just wondering if  there's any kind of weather report that can inform me if the frost has passed so I can start planting my seeds out direct. I've googled it but all sorts of stuff come up and obviously weather reports only go a week in advance. Thanks so much. Emma

To early Misselong still frost to get and snow no doubt late April early May is more the time. Better late planting and they will catch up than planting early and losing them.

Misselong, I always assume that the last frost could be as late as May18th. Having said that I always put my Pelagoniums from last year outside at the beginning of April (after hardening them off for about 5 minutes) as by that time I think of them adult enough to look after themselves. Besides I need the room in the green house for newbies.

Late frosts also depend where you live and you can get things called frost pockets 

I do agree May is usually safe , best of luck

Yep yee its March. Going to start my sowing my seeds this week ( in the kitchen) my poor husband lol, but I did sow some hot peppers 16 days ago and they are all 1cm high yeah. 

Misslong if you put them outside under cloths. I use old curtain nettings they should keep them safe from April. Last year I planted outside in the middle of march before I went away and they grew lovely. This year I'm keeping a dairy so next year so I know for next year.

Daylily seeds planted today.
