I got 2 out of 4 so will wait till the weather warms up before direct planting some more.
Mine are cruising along:
Well done,mine are half that.
I planted some seeds late summer and had zero germinate.
Got from another source now and will try again later this year. Sept-Oct.
I received my seeds from another forum and they are having similar germination issues. Seems like I'm the only one to get 100%, fluked it I guess. I have 5 seeds to go and I'm waiting for Spring too.
You can see from that pic the difference in type already, 2 are taller and slender, 2 are stocky with a wide taper. The wide taper, stocky ones interest me for my block and hopefully they keep those characteristics.
I am concerned about viability life of seed since mine was from nothern hemisphere.
Believe viability is rather short
and that they need really high temps to germinate.
8 months I read.
I germinated in current temps, which is cusp of Autumn/Winter. May have been 20 or so (degrees Celsius), it's down to 16 or so now.
