Sowing Advice

Sow seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time . Lightly cover with fine river sand or compost to their own depth. Seeds are best sown in winter early spring to benefit from cold dormancy. If seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be put in a plastic bag and  given cold treatment in the fridge at 4 degrees C for four weeks. They still may take many months to appear, so please do not discard.
