How long before I furtle in my seeds???

arjak, seedling angst Brillilant. When I sow the seeds I do write the date on the label..............but have never thought about writing the expected germaination date on there as well

Red, I don't have a greenhouse, have you thought about using coldframes? Mine are basically sturdy, mini greenhouses.

To water, or not to water

 Hi Loz, I water from the bottom too, I see the compost change colour and then I sow on top of this and gently pat down the seeds so the water is absorbed in the top layer if that makes sense.

Where are you keeping the seed trays?

Can't resist packets of seed, all the better when they are discounted at the end of the season. Also a sucker for the "sad" corner of places like B&Q etc, always have a look and see if any can be saved. LIke Muddy Paws says it would be rude not to

Today I feel so happy....

I'd give the sweetpeas a bit longer, I have found with sweetpeas if the conditions are right they will mostly germinate. Not grown the others This is my first year of growing veg.

Growing from seed is brilliant

Today I feel so happy....

I'm still happy as today an aubreitta that I bought for 50p last year and nervously cut back hard last year,  is starting to flower and the plant is is 3 times as big.

I'm really looking forward to the weekend as I will be sowing some annuals and watching the late spring show come out.
