Salt and Vinegar

Posted: 31/05/2012 at 22:26

I use boiling water on weeds on my patio, It kills them off but has to be applied every 6 weeks. I have tried salt on dandelions on the lawn but it has to be a hot few days.

seeds not germinated

I always soak my morning glory seeds and I get  a minimum of 75% germination.

@fran53 could be slugs but birds also like young seedlings, I use fleece to protect seedlings from pigeons and starlings.I rarely sow in the ground as they always pull them out.

@angelique2 I am really surprised as sunflowers are usually the easiest seeds, where did you get the seeds from?

Can I recommend using a  plastic bag, this way the seeds do not get too wet or too dry.
