Either my memory is as hazy as fog or I've never had that much of bad luck with seeds. I planted most mid March and most have not emerged. Curious I dug through one pot to check if the seeds could of rotted but found the Pansy seed still there, albeit a darker shade of brown (do they go darker when wet? ).
My second batch of seeds is doing much better, with 4 of them (different species) coming up after a week. Should I wait a little longer? Is this normal?
RubyL, where are these pots; it sounds to me like they may not have been warm enough?
They are in the greenhouse which is unheated. Today I decided to throw half of the ones that didn't germinate and replace them. From the bigger seeds I saw they were virtually unchanged.
In fact with the Nasturtium I decided to go all out. I grabbed an unused trough, filled half with compost and put all remaining seeds of all 3 species I have.
