As I have been producing more trays of seedlings to go in the tunnel today, and I am rapidly running out of room, I have had to be a bit hard handed and discard some trays of seedlings that are not up to scratch or just not growing!
I am not an expert gardener by any stretch of the imagination and one of the most enjoyable things about horticulture for me is that you NEVER stop learning. So, to this end, I am afraid I am going to have to hold my hands up and admit to some EPIC sowing fails.
I’m not sure exactly what has gone wrong, but there wasn’t even a sniff in any of these seed trays so I am afraid, they are for the chop!
GAZANIA ‘Tiger Mix’
I have done 2 lots of sowings of these. The first was at the end of January and the second was mid-February. Out of 160 seeds sown into 40 cell trays, NOT A SINGLE seedling has germinated 😦
ERIGERON ‘Azure Fairy and Pink Jewel’
I followed the instructions to the letter with both of these trays and not a sausage! Time to go!
Nothing, absolutely NOTHING!!
So, as you can see, not everything has been successful. I am not put off by any stretch of the imagination and although I have no DELPHINIUM seeds left, I will try again with the ERIGERON and the GAZANIA’S. Will keep you posted!!
