Grow you Own: Growing from Seeds


By winko8


Hi all, this year instead of buying plants from the local garden centre or ordering Plug plants online.

I have decided to grow the following from seed (Sun cherry F1) Tomatoes (Jumbo Sweet F!) Sweet peppers and a variety of Herbs form the Duchy original organic ranges with the aid of a heated propagator

As you can see the Seed are stating to develop well, but they seem to be a little top heavy, hopefully this will not harm the final product. I will have to wait until the end of April as it is still to cold to plant them out in to there final planting position

Yeah it took about 5/6 weeks, The propagator def help to germinate the seeds especially the toms and S/peppers, but the herbs are proving to be difficult !!!.
