3 days after planting seeds & the Apero tomatoes are the first seedlings. When I checked this morning there was nothing, then this afternoon this!

Decided to plant another 6 Trinity chillies & another 6 Dorset nagas this evening.

My seeds have arrived from sea spring seeds today so I've been and bought a few extra propagators,a soil thermometer, some seed compost ,plant labels & some jiffy pots.
 All this years Chillies seeds are now planted & put on the heated seed propergator (bathroom floor). Hopefully they will germinate nice and fast and the chillies will have a nice head start this year before being grown on in the poly tunnel.

dorset naga seeds planted

Dorset naga seeds taken from last years crop are planted and hopefully will starting to germinate. Last year the Nagas took a couple of months to germinate on the window sill and were very slow growing. This year I thought I'd give them a headstart and start them off nice and early on our heated bathroom floor.

I think I might of killed off all my chilli seeds by overheating them in the drying out process last year, just to be on the safe side I've ordered some more seeds so I don't waste a month or two waiting for dead seeds to germinate.

Seeds I'm going to be attempting to grow this year are as follows:

Rooster Spur
Aji Limo
Orange habanero
Dorset naga
Caldero Jalapeno
Pimiento de padron
