Sowing advice

Put the seeds into hot water which has just been boiled and soak them for 12 hours. If some seeds are not yet plump, re-soak them in hot water for 12 hours. Sow the seeds onto moist seed raising mix and cover to their depth with mix. Keep them moist at about 18-22 deg C.  They should germinate in about 10-20 days. If they don’t germinate, don’t be too hasty to discard them as they often don’t germinate until conditions are right.
