Here is proof that seeds don't always germinate!! 🙈 Maybe my fault, maybe nature. That's life! More to sow in Feb, so really no worries at all 👍🏻 #oops #sweetpeas

C'est la vie Ellen but it's all good fun isn't it! 👍🏻💚👍🏻 I always seem to find that whenever I plant seeds in cardboard or coir pot the germination rare it's lower than other pot?? What's your take on that, or is it just my shoddy sowing technique?? 😂😂😂 what does everyone else think? #germinationrate #germinationproblems #sowingseeds

Indeed @mrsflowerpot c'est la vie! Well I haven't noticed lower germination in cardboard before, will have to see how this year goes 😬

I planted four pots of sweet peas, five to each pot. Two pots put up five shoots, the other two nothing. They are in the cold greenhouse, just last week one shoot appeared in one of the empty pots!

Oh what a shame Ellen 😳 I planted loads - some in loo roll tubes and some in pots (also soaked some and left the others) the ones in the loo rolls were doing really well, better than the pots - but the mice had other plans! 😏 @mrsflowerpot so now I have none!

I had a few that didn't germinate too, and a few seedlings that have withered away to nothing! Glad I kept some seeds by too!

Funny @joanboston last year I must have dropped a few seed so in between the cardboard pots & shoots started growing up! They were ace & I planted them out. Nature is fab 👍🏻
