Working on a list to see when I should start my vegetable seeds based on the last winter frost. I planted more vinca since all didn't make it this far but I have 4 healthy ones. Most have germinated. Euphorbia has germinated as well as licorice plant. They took a while. So far only a few licorice seeds have germinated though. Hopefully more will. I planted 10 fancy pants petunia seeds. They're acting delicate or it may just be that some seeds may be healthier and thrive more were some don't from the beginning. I have some others to start, should have ordered more of them when they were still in stock. I told you about the calibrachoa I ordered from Burpee. Supposed to be pelleted when they came but weren't. They allegedly refunded my card, I have yet to check and see. Didn't respond to 2 e-mails or via phone with a response. Not good business. Working with dust like seeds can be a nightmare at least to me and I try to avoid it. It was disappointing that they weren't shipped in a plastic tub like other pelleted seeds.
|Coleus still germinating.|
|Vinca germinated. Black plastic removed. They need darkness to germinate.|
|Petunia are normally easy to grow but these are being picky. I'm going to start others.|
|New geraniums starting to sprout.|
|Vinca doing nicely. No need to pinch for them to be full. Vinca is the perfect seedling to me. I said that about the begonia but each year and time starting seeds can be different. Some things you can't control.|
|I think I need to remove some of the seedlings to the 5" green pots because I can see all the roots filling out the cups already and they do tend to get big before spring.|
|Some African daisies are hanging on. Some died when I dropped them on the floor and didn't put them back in the soil soon enough. I'll start a small carton again. They germinate real fast.|
