They actually recovered now and have perked back up. I have had to open my mini greenhouse was getting too hot lol, you cant win. My greenhouse is well and truely full now, started off a dahlia tuber yesterday too. Everything seems to be doing ok and its staying frost free overnight. One of my pologonium cuttings off last year is starting to flower on the windowsill too.

Do you keep your marigolds indoors for the time being or are they fairly hardy?

Growing Sweet Peas

I have planted another set think they were either getting too warm or drying out as they were on a windowsill above a radiator which was perhaps the problems. If all else fails i buy them from b&Q.

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 21/03/2013 at 20:18

My second set of sweet peas are not germinating. I placed them outside and they didnt germinate, well one did. So i brought them in for more heat and for 2 weeks nothing happened. I then swapped the seeds thinking maybe they rotted or something and started again but this time indoors. One germinated and non of the other have after 3 weeks, I had no problems the first time i dont understand what im doing wrong. I have had the seeds stored in cuboard indoors since september? could this be the problem or im i doing somthing wrong germinating them. I have nicked the seeds as per my rhs book i did last time and had 90% germinating.

Any help would be appreciated.

makes sure you give the seed tray a very good clean out each time or the fungus will just keep cumming back
