    Conducted an accidental experiment – the half of the modules that was on top of the heat mat germinated much quicker and more completely than the half that was off the end of the mat. So I’ve turned it round now to heat the other side! Had soaked seeds overnight in water as instructed by Sir Higg. However was still quite surprised at such good germination as the seed was saved from plants the year before last! There is hope for me yet!

    the first lot of Cerinthe that I planted this year at the end of feb were very reluctant to germinate, & I only got 7, – as the ones overwintering on the allotment and in my veg patch had all failed, I thought I was in trouble, – but I’ve tried again, and a little bottom heat (in a propagator for a couple of days) and they are now popping up all over the place. – These are all from seeds saved from last year
