This is sooo annoying. The plant has produced two flowers but no seeds. I thought it didn't need a second plant to set see.

The Victorians used to do it and it was one of Thompson and Morgan's new products last year but see from your link that it has been going on comersially since at least 75.

I have an abundance of chillies and tomato seedlings and was thinking of trying grafting some on potatoes. Have anyone of you tried it and does it improvement the yield of the fruit?

I normally use old plastic pots and containers when I've been using my radiator to propagate seeds but thought this time i try something new. I've even used old (washed) plastic meat trains as saucers for the plants!

Most of the seeds are just covered (tomtoes and cucamelons) will try to scrape the mould off and wait. Anything that sprouts will be moved out asap.

I'm using fiber pots as I thought I'd be able to get more plants in. The mould is on the surface of the pots but none of the seeds has germinated yet. Planted them on Saturday.

Would just removing the white fluff on top save the seeds below?

Damn it seems like the whole thing got to damp and moist so all pots are covered in a light mould so have to bin it all i guess.

Any ideas why my cotton lavender has stopped flowering? It grows  in one of these black recycling boxes so quite a lot of space.

Bought a cheap propagators last week and wonder should the vents be opened to let the condensation out or should I wait until the seeds germinate before venting it. It has quite a lot of condensation inside.
