NewBoy2NewBoy2 Posts: 782

I have saved the following seeds from last Summer

Orange Crocosmia   4.10.16

Small Hot Peppers  1.10.16

Yellow Sweet Peppers    24.5.16

I have a conservatory and would like advice on when to start off

    Never done the crocosmia New boy, but the peppers need warmth to germinate and can take a while to get going. I shall be starting mine off in a heated propagator at the end of Jan.

    Bob is the expert with peppers, got some good advice from him last year?, hope he spots your post.

    I raise all my seeds in the conservatory too, plenty of light image

    I started off my peppers in February in a heated propagator indoors. The GH is frost free but nowhere near warm enough for pepper germination at that time of year. Funny how conservatoríes soon start to fill upimage

  • Are you sure you need to grow crocosmia from seed?

    It usually bulks up fast enough on its own - many people treat it as a weed! - and it is easy to split if you need more clumps.

    I would save the space and time for something more preciousimage
