Default Re: What seeds have germinated for you?

Hi all,
Really pleased to report that I have now got 3 seedlings out of 6 sown of Musa "Monkey Fingers".
A new one for me. Most of my plants are from seed and I do not have much trouble germinating them, just sow in peat based compost put pot in plastic bag sealed to keep in moisture and then on top of my central heating boiler. Then when I have a bath I know that my seeds are being warmed nicely.

My experience is that they do like the warm then warmer still type of treatment.

Still enjoy seeing them pop through the compost....knowing that I am starting them into life.

The main thing people MUST remember is that if you sow ten seeds and get 3 germinate you have done well....I always try to get one good variety plant from a packet of seeds.
