You know you've got problems when you cannot grow something from seed.
This my second attempt at growing some perenial flowers from seed, and this attempt is turning out the same as the first. The seeds begin to sprout and then they go mouldy/furry and die!!!
This is how i've gone about things so far. I've sown the seeds lightly in compost, lightly watered them and then covered the tray with cling film and kept them at room temperature in the dining room. Growth seems to happen quite quickly but so does the mould/white fur and the subsequent death.
This time i've taken off the cling film once i've seen some shoots coming up as some where dying off at this point. Maybe with the cling film it was creating a very humid environment for them.......?
Now i've taken the cling film off the soil seems to dry very quickly. How much water do the seeds need at this point?
Any guidance and help would be appreicated as i clearly cannot get the basics right.
