90% germination success [on propagating mat] sown end March. Now, end April, planting out the seedlings.

Plants doing well but germination success was poor

Reviewed 15th June 2017 by Rebecca Brooks

I'm hopeful the plants that have successfully germinated will do well as they appear to be growing well. However, the germination rate was poor with only 10 of the 30 seeds germinating, despite being grown in the same conditions and watered etc. in the same way. This makes them rather pricey os hopefully the successful ones will be spectacular plants!
