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.

I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

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

I have 2 hanging baskets 1 foot in diameter and i want to fill one with trailing lobelia. How many plants should I put in to fill the basket and then trail over the edge? In the other i will put surfina in how many will i need for that basket?

I also have 2 15 inch potts and in one I am going to put a oblisk in and grow nasturtums up the oblisk, how many will i need to fill the pot up for a good display? I am going to plant morning glories with an oblisk in the other pot, how many of those will I need to grow to get a good extremely bushy display.

Thanks for any advice
