Today I have sown one seed each of Tomato Ildi, Lemon Tree, Snow White, Moneymaker, Tigerella and Black Cherry. They are each in a 3″ pot in John Innes seed compost and for the moment are sitting on the computer box. Germination should take seven to ten days if kept at a temperature of 18-21c. Tip – It is a good idea to provide some sort of covering over your germination containers to preserve moisture. You can place the container in a plastic bag or cover it with a sheet of plastic. Allow for some air to circulate but don’t let the mix dry out. Dry seeds will not germinate.
