Hi Guys,

I've planted some flower seeds (which I can't spell but sounds like this...mes mer ran thums ) followed the instructions on the pack and put them in my greenhouse but it didn't mention watering them. Having just watched Monty planting flower bulbs, he said the flowers need water to this all flowers, should I water mine?

PS I covered them with a layer of vermiculite stuff, please excuse my ignorence.

To Busy-Lizzie...when you say germinated what exactly does that mean?  yes, I'm a complete novice. Does this show any signs, as I said there's nothing, just sad looking soil

I planted Sweet pea seeds around the 4/3/13, 5 to a pot watered them just the once as told and left them in my greenhouse...totally forgot to bring them inside where it was warmer to start them off. Looking at them now they are bone dry and doing nothing  Can I do anything with them or should I just start again? I have everlasting ones on the go which are coming on fine but as last year was my first year with them and they were beautiful I wanted to have a really good mix this year. Whats your thoughts guys??
