bizzarely its the opposite, with growing so many types sometimes I`m looking for something new but only want 10-15 seeds :)

I do have one bit of feedback regarding the website tho, (and not the perfomance issues of late )
when selecting seed would it be possible to either sort by number of seeds OR have number of seeds per packet as a filter on the left hand side.

Hi Natalie, thanks for taking the time to comment.
No complaints regarding seeds at all, delivery is always very prompt.
Got a fair few petunias and fushias on order for delivery April time, will report how they arrive.

Paul they look great, leggy means they are tall and spindly, not getting enough light so they go searching for it (thats how I see it anyway)

Less leggy but true leaves much bigger

Lesson learnt for me too Pete-T, some of my first batch have survived but the majority were too leggy and even when I planted them deeper they still carried on being leggy. I'm now on my second attempt with some of the seeds and hoping for better luck.See original post
I`m the same. some of my very early ones I potted on and they are a tall gangly mess, think its time to bin.
I`ve 5-6 geraniums that I sowed 4 weeks after that and are still in orginal propagator tray (but off the heat) that look so much healthier and bulkier.
Yesterday at 12:59
I have come to the realisation that I started the propagator way too early, lets chalk that one down to being too inquisitive.
Whilst I have some hardy geraniums that I planted later and some thunbergia that look ok, I`m not sowing anything else until the end of March.
The snapdragons seeds I got from the garden are germinated (as are the asarina I sowed) so fingers crossed they arent too early.
The hours of daylight in scotland just arent enough right now so everythings leggy as mad.

planted last wed night, 5 days and 30 or so germinated.... free plants is good 😂

good example, when the 4 for 5 offer was on
Zinnia Elegans Magellan Mixed F1 Hybrid 1 Packet (10 Seeds)
Catharanthus Roseus Mediterranean Lilac 1 Packet (25 Seeds)
cost me 91p delivered

I usually pick the packets that are £1 now
oh god I`ve got soooo many packets lol, no way I can grow them all, and if they all did germinate and get to full flower I dont have the room to plant them.
my theory is only a % will succeed and I will pick the healthiest to pot on etc.
I`ve 16 buxton blue germaniums in 3" pots, 8 thunbergia (blushing suzies) in 3" pots, only 1 purple haze germinated out of 10 but thats also in a 3" now.
Just put about 30 Asarina in the propagator (was only ment to be 20 in packet but counted 30) and most germinated after 2-3 days

I use them a lot for seeds, and have no complaints at all.
They give you a £5 voucher every order, so select £5 worth of seed, then checkout, £2 P&P and use voucher............ total cost £2 and then you get another voucher
Repeat a few times and you get a lot of seed for your ££
I`ve 3 seperate orders for petunias and fushia plugs, will comment when received but no complaints so far to be honest.
15 Feb 2017 16:30
sown on surface and bit of vermiculite and bunged em in propagator
15 Feb 2017 15:42

looking good aswell Kitty
No joy with night sky seeds but to be honest I`ve got so many packets I`m not fused if I get any or not.
got 10 orange plug petunias and 12 amore plug petunias on order from T&M so got enough for my needs this year
Plus a packet of 50 seeds for another type of petunia
Membraned another area of the garden a few weeks back to place 2 coldframes in, running out of lawn to cover lol
