Obelixx - the real Possum will re-emerge - take no notice of her behaviour, continue to treat her as the lovely person she really is and it will happen ..... eventually

The meadows where I know them to grow are regularly flooded in the winter - I don't think it can be too wet for them

What does it say on the back of the packet?

Tomato seeds

Oh certainly I agree  Chris, don't let them dry out ... I just watch out for the leaves to just begin to get soft and then the pots get a good soaking. 

Out of 20+ pots of outdoor toms last year I had two fruits with BER early on ... and I'm still using frozen tomato sauce for pasta etc from last year's harvest

They grow wild in a meadow near my old home - they are exquisite - if I had some there's no way I'd give them away, no matter how much I loved my wedding guests

Some seeds bought on ebay from China turn out to be what they say they are.  Some don't. 

You pays your money and you takes your chances.  Fine if you want an adventure - but if I want to be sure of what I'm getting I'll buy from a company that operates under European laws and with consumer's rights etc.

I will concede that Wonky was an adorable child

 Wonky's first garden (all her own work )

And yes, I did get her permission to post them

Geranium germination

My one Ger. Rozanne is now three   It needed to be dug up and potted up to wait for a new home in the sunnier bed we're creating;  it'll be happier there than where it's been on the Shady Bank - so providing they survive the rather savage root pruning they've experienced, one of them is for you Wonky   And don't forget, there's a rather huge Geum Totally Tangerine ready and waiting for you too.
