If push comes to shove I will end up with mine staying in conservatory, but I don't want my lovely farrow and ball cream table to get yellow Tom stains so may mean a home move about!! I'm staying hopefully that all will be ok. Don't panick Captain Mannering!!!!

Sweet pepper seed germination - epic failure!

I will keep my fingers crossed and wait. Wonder if I can have a look by moving the compost and see what's going on, or will it spoil the seed??

Just wanted a sweetbpepper that went in a basket and apparently produced lots! Just so dissappointed. I got them in early as heard the stories that they take time! One measly seedling! I bought a propogator John innes and vermiculite and one seedling!!

Peaches!!!! Intreguing!

I take pride in the toms but I hate eating them, only in cooking, but he insists on an eating variety. I has a fleshy plumb the year before last and it was brill for cooking and for sarnies. Just racking my brain for the name.

On the 10 march I set 6 sweet pepper (sweet sunshine f1) 5 days ago I got very excited as the guest seed popped through. Now nothing I have one little seedling and 5 other bare pots. Is all lost, has other people got experience of this? I kept the propogator in the window so it was always between 15-21 degrees. I was hoping for a prolific hanging basket full if these peppers but now it looks like I may have one, if the seedling comes ok. The seed was 2.69 as its a revolutionary type according to the write up. Sad!

They are up in the wall in my back garden, with my Hosta tubs, waiting for them to peep through! Hopefully if its a ground frost I will get away with it but will have a think if it snows. Ran out if garden tasks to do today, feels depressing now, back waiting to sow my courgette seeds!!
