Click on this link and it will tell you in detail http://www.talktalk.co.uk/lifestyle/homesgardens/thompson_morgan/petunia.html# It is what I do. I sow them every year, usually works fine, occasionally doesn't. Saw you had a problem with lobelia. I sowed them like in the link last year and I had lots. Tricky to prick out though as they are very small.
cheers i will click on your link.
Thanks for that BL it's a useful guide. Planning to try and grow my own this year for the first time.
No need to prick out Lobelia, sow them in 2 inch module trays, put a pinch of seed in each and just leave them in there untilready to plant out, I buy from Premier seed, ebay, 4000 in a packet, I grow the whole lot, you can never have too many lobelia plants.
Petunias are the easiest of seeds, they all germinate, have a go, follow the instructions in the above link,
I sow Lobelia indoors in mid to late Feb, but Petunias, never before mid March.
