    Hi Puzzle image.  Are they monkey puzzle seedlings? 

    Looking good and healthy, with lots of leaves after only six weeks, well done?. 

    I love the thrill of growing from seed, mostly annuals starting in the spring.  What's the plan for your trees? Do you have a massive garden, or will you keep only one?

    Hi kitty

    I already have a 5ft in my front garden, but decided I wanted to grow from seed.This will make you laugh I have 120 potted up and keep watching them everyday. I’m carrying out a little experiment, some are in the heated vitapod and the rest on in plastic tubs and have also taken root but slower so the heated gadget gives them a good start.

    Im well pleased up to now and again I will update images for my followers to see that’s if I have any lol?I wish to give them away when the look good enough to go. Almost forgot yes my garden is big but love being in it. I will keep a couple ?

    Blimey Puzzle, you've got a mini forest on the go ???image.

    I first used a heated propagator in Jan this year to start off my chillies. It's only a small Stewarts one, but a great bit of kit for kick starting germination.  

    There's a seed sowing thread on the forum where the seedaholics post pics of our babies. It usually starts up in the spring, I'll see if I can find it and post a link.  Then you can have a nosey at ours if you like image.
