    I have luck every year by surface sowing, and putting a plastic produce bag over the cell packs. All day sitting in the light, on a heating pad. Every night the cell packs go to a cool closet (not heated at all). Happy planting!

    I sowed a tray outside on 16 th April, I have no greenhouse :(. Also I live in sunny ( ehum, well it is today) Cornwall. they are just starting to poke through now. The last but one of my trays to show life. Looks like the natural Cornish climate worked its magic, if somewhat slowly, on these guys.

    I sowed a tray on the 10th March this year and after a few weeks had no signs of germination. Then put the tray out for a couple of nights bringing back in during the day and placing next to a large french door – about half then germinated.
