Thank you Eva!
I'm so glad to have so many people to help me get started, before this I had no idea what a propagator even was
Now that I'm armed with information, thanks to everyone on this forum, I'm confident that I won't kill my seedlings this time around....I even have a few on my window sill which have germinated in the last couple if days!yay!

Thanks Stacey, do I just pop them in the freezer bags and leave them on the sill? Or do I need to add anything?
Busy Bee, I put then on my east facing sill this morning, thanks for the vote of confidence
Lyn, I put mine in pots too, but newbie that I am, I'll have a go at the freezer bag method as well and what happens

I'm glad I came across this thread, I am a new gardener and was wondering if a propagator is a must-have

Ok, so I'll have to secure them well then....Thanks for all the input, there's so much to learn!
Btw, I have sown more seeds indoors today, in little pots and placed then on the window sill....that's where they'll stay till it's warm and they have a few leaves....I hope I won't make anymore mistakes this time, I really want to grow something!

Hi SweetPea 93, thanks for the tip, there's a new B&M recently opened near my house, I think I'll get one of those greenhouses, there was hail again today please let me know how your seedlings do, it'll be nice to compare notes with another newbie
Thank you MH, I'll be sure to buy the 'hardy'seeds from now on,I didn't even know about this!

Thanks Lyn
I live in Essex, we had a scorching summer last year. So for now, it's the window sill, right? I'm glad I don't need a propagator, I spent a lot of money on pots, seeds and heading supplies!
I'm so looking forward to my own veggies this I need a greenhouse then?

Posted: 23/03/2014 at 14:34 should I start again with seeds in little yogurt pots on my window sill? Or should I wait until next month? The problem is, my Windows face east and west-no south facers. I don't have a propagator, should I get one?
Thanks for your helpful comments, dovefromabove and nutcutlet, otherwise I would have kept watering them and thinking why they don't grow!
