Trial 2 is about sowing time, germination rate and speed of growth of annual seeds. A race, essentially, more details here. One group was sown on 4th February, the second group will be sown a couple of months later in April.

I checked how they were getting on at the weekend. The Cosmos has germinated pretty fast, under a week judging by the growth so far. The seedlings are a good few cm tall already, some still wearing a seed cap.

Wearing a seed for a hat.

Nothing doing so far in the other two varieties in this trial.

I’ll be back with an update next weekend.
