    Can I arsk 1 more question?

    What do you do if 2 seeds have started to germinate but the other 9 are still underground? The lids have two open/close thingies each.

    Probably a bad idea to mix Sweet Poupila Dwarf Pepper seeds with Tam Jalapeno (mild)...

    Thank you again, wish I could buy you all a drink.

    Prick out / transplant the ones that have germinated.
    How i do it is. fill pot or what ever they are going into with compost, water it, then walk away for an hour or so until it has warmed up. then Transplant them.

    Sound advice SP!

    Default All Correct At Attention

    Small Pumpkin's chillis on top, big brother Thai Dragon protecting newborn Sweet Poupila (Good grief - listen to me!) - the other three SP oicked out very gently, had to take photo side on so you could see them, they're so small.

    Have put them near, not on, sunniest window sill, which can bake; and near the gentle heat of the propagator.

    Thanks again for your wisdom!
