Sowing the seeds

Once the seeds had been stratified in the fridge for around 6 weeks, on the 5th April 2014 I planted them in trays. Soil mix 60/40 (cat-litter/compost) with a layer of sharp sand 3cm deep.

I then used a ruler to dig lines into the sand.

I then placed the seeds in the tray 3cms apart

Finally I sprinkled sifted sand over the top to cover the seeds (a layer just as thick as the seeds themselves).

I have put them in full sun and cover them at night to protect against heavy rain. Am also watering them with Superthrive vitamin B root stimulant.
