Fishy65, I just put them into 3 inch pots untill they are about 6 to 8 inch high and then plant them in their final destination. For me, this is large pots 10 to 15 ltr is sufficient. Check my growing tomatoes video part 3for this stage. Here is the link

Sounds good Boater, I am sure your tomatoes and flowers will do well.

Bf206, yeah some varieties tend to be better germinators than others. The late ones may come through in the next couple of days, just make sure that you keep them moist, now that the lid is off!

My tomatoes are coming on well and have now reached the stage to be potted on to 3" pots (this weekends job).

My video Growing tomatoes Part 2 covers this stage. See it the following link:

Barry, its funny how things work out hey?  The thing about onions is that they usually do give a reasonable crop and you can always use loads of onions in the kitchen, so they are good to grow for most gardeners.

I think I will be filming the Growing Onions part 2 video this weekend (or at least part of it) as the Kelsae's will probably need potting on.

Bf206, I would keep the cover on untill you see seedlings up to an inch or so high.
