I have just been given some dianthus seed and I was wondering whether I could sow the seed now or should I wait till spring?
I would be most grateful for your advice.
Thank you, Philippa, I'll follow your advice.
Keep the seed in a paper envelope in the Salad compartment of the fridge (not the freezer). They are the fastest germinating seeds I have ever grown. Overnight from fridge on filter paper in Petri dishes. Amazing.
Thnk you, Berghill, I will. Good to know they're enthusiastic germinators!
Yes, I would follow that advice Philippa - as you sent me some last autumn, which I sowed in October, and they germinated very quickly with no problems. I did overwinter the seedlings successfully but in hindsight I too would have sown them in the Spring.
