I grew sun gold last year and only one I got a crop from. Rest were cut from plant and ripened indoors as I thought they were going to sit there for ever!!

Covered, thermometer in and not dried out. My only seedling now stands about 3/4 of an inch tall but is lonely! Nothing else showing at all!

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!!!!

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!
