hi all

I will be sowing lobelia soon, I understand you mix the seeds with sand. What type of sand do I need to buy?

Sharp sand or horticultural sand will do, just dont use builders sand.

I have never done that, i just put a small pinch into individual modules, that way you dont need to transplant, i would be there forever if i had to do that as i grow hundreds of them.

Thanks Dave and Lyn

Just wanting check is this the right time to start them or maybe a little later. I cant remeber when I started them last year

I'd say mid February on-wards for lobelia seeds

Thanks thought it was a little early

Mid to end of Feb is just right.

I have lobelia in a coated covering I think it's clay do you sow in clumps or two to a plug ??

last year I sowed in clumps and just thinned out seemed to work well. They are really tiny seedlings.

put a pinch of seed in each plug.
