The subject of Trial 1 is seed sowing mix, more details available here. As a reminder, the two groups in the trial are:

  • Group 1, sown in multi purpose compost
  • Group 2, sown in thick layer of vermiculite on compost.

So, after ten days, the state of the nation in Trial 1 is that only the Lychnis arkwrightii has any action at all, the pots on the left of this picture.

Germination has occurred in both groups but more seedlings are visible in the Group 2 pot. This may just be because the Group 1 seedlings have to push through a light covering of compost whereas the Group 2 seeds were just sown on the surface and watered in. We shall see.
I’ll be back, with another Trial 1 update at the weekend.
