"David, beg to differ, as Pixie will lose to Caroline"....Morning, Frank my view is more about who I think will win, rather than who I wish to win.

Hi-ya, stranger  how nice to see you. xx

I agree, conditions is still warm enough to sow....'windowsill' I know you will, but boot-camp as soon as they start to show. At least they'll be spared the garage this year.

I was speaking to Jenny (Mrs Eagle)  recently, she told me about some of the after sales queries they get. A lady recently contacted them saying 'I've sown my sweet peas three weeks ago and put them in the airing cupboard....they are now 10 inches tall, what do I do now?'

Wills - Your supports will need to be 6 to 8 feet tall.

Probably (if it's high enough) your slatted fence draped with some plastic pea netting would be the way to go.

Bet it will be your star performer, ommthree.

Germination normally takes between 7 & 21 days, but (for me)  feel 7 days indicates too much warmth...21 days producing much better seedlings.

Wills....I'm losing the will to live  switch it off, cut the plug off and throw it away!

 

I should have said, then put in your unheated greenhouse.

Lid off during the day - on at night.

Wills.....no, put it all, lock stock & barrel in your unheated greenhouse tomorrow.

"will the seeds that have not germinated will they still germinate ?"

Almost certainly, just replace the lid a night until they have....then dispose  of the propagator.
