hello I have grown from seed last year. only had three survive! think it's easier collecting fresh seed though ( I HOPE) I'm on chalk and mine are doing fine and going to flower soon.... they are in a moist shady spot.I never had mine inside...they germinate nicely in colder weather.

I used them to test my soil. Came as a pack of two. Took ages for the capsule to leak open. Ended up doing both of them. Does work just takes a while. I sat in front of the telly shaking them....while getting funny looks from the wife!

I'd probably use perlite then zoomrr44 !vermiculite is the one that holds 500 times it's weight in water. Perlite is great for drainage. I'm happy to have that in my compost heap

I dunno not had any problems with my horti glass in the storms blairs! When I brought mine I read reviews on the polycarb greenhouses and alot of people complained about windows popping out in the wind. Didn't realisr it was wooden framed. Think most people would like a bigger greenhouse when they look back on it. Defo look out for the sales though.
