Thanks for the replies, I should have sowed these seeds much earlier in the year for a display this winter, I'm annoyed now as I completely forgot!
marklikesbees, you say you are overwintering your little plants in a cold greenhouse, but I am guesing summer flowering ones aren't as hardy? My winter ones last year kept flowering all through the snow and hard frosts and they were all in containers so I know they are tough little things!
I feel dumb for asking this but is it true that in general all seeds need warmth (but not direct sunlight) to actually get germination going or do some need cold?
I guess it's an experiment to see what works as I have got some seeds sowed everywhere!
