Germination Tips

Post by Allym » November 20th, 2017, 12:43 am

i am unable to germinate Lemon Ba, Chamomile and Parsley. I have attempted it twice. Once in September and Once in October. Both attempts went unsuccessful.
I sowed them in Good Potting mix including Bhalu matti + Perlite (Small Qty) + Peet Moss .
Parsley germinated like 4-5 seeds out of many, after 25 days.
Chamomile and Lemon Bam did not germinate at all..


If any body can share their experience.

seeds must be expired and old... otherwise these are easy plants to germinate and grow...
