    Hi Ben,

    I seem to have been successful with an autumn sowing of your Nigella! The warm weather has coaxed them out into the big wide world. My question is, should I water them or are they best left to their own devices. Also, for how long should I keep Spring sown seeds watered? Last year, I watered my seedlings for 3 weeks from planting and then stopped. This proved very successful so I’m thinking that if I watered my seeds for 6 weeks………? Anything to make life easier!

    Many thanks,

      you just have to play it by ear…if we have a really dry spell they will need a water…because most things are late this year they won’y get the benefit of the spring showers…
