Seed germination - any hope for ones sown too early?

Posted: 06/04/2014 at 15:52

Thanks MH. Shall do. I emptied one of the trays of sweet peas and there wasn't a sign of any seeds at all.  I'm guilty of over watering too.  good luck with yours. Trial and error (a lot of error on my part) is all part of the learning curve I guess. 

What Would You Do Next?

What will you be planting in it ngcards? I filled mine up and then planted potatoes....meaning I ended up taking a good layer off in order to get the troughs right!  Looks great.

I'm very guilty of this. Just come in from the greenhouse and I'm vowing not to water until pots are dry. So many feel damp and have that green mould on the top. I've scrapped most of this off and hope it all drys out. Definitely a lesson for me!

Hi, i purchased a bare root discentra (sorry if spelt incorrectly) from Wilko's earlier this year. It was going great guns but started to look a bit floppy a couple of weeks ago. This morning a lot of the new leaf growth had gone brown and dry. I've snipped this off and decided to see what the roots are up to.  They look a bit brown, and muggy.  Probably too much watering on my part. Is it worth leaving the root out of a pot for a bit to let it dry out or should I plant it back up ASAP and hope for the best? Thanks muchly!

Hi, having learnt my lesson with being too early on the seed front, please can anyone advise if it is too early to plant these beetroot seedlings in my outside raised bed? If it is too early, shall I leave them in the seed tray or pot them on individually? Thanks ever so much!

Thanks Lyn, Artjak. I saw a heated propagator today for £30: I might just get one now. Gutted about my seeds though. I might just have a go at singing to them tomorrow; give em one last day to make an appearance!!
