Well I sowed 6 different varieties from left over packets of seeds that I have used over the years. Almost all have come up, some better than others. The only no shows are minibel - well there is one let's see if it survives and if so whether it is nice.
It is always best to have more than you need to cover for losses...and there are always losses - slugs, weather etc. and it is nice to give away any you really don't need.
Mine are sitting in my unheated greenhouse but if we have no sun I shall have to move them back indoors to the windowsill above a radiator which is the only place they would germinate.
Here's looking forward to sunny summer days when we can potter round the garden snacking on beautifully warm sweet tomatoes
