    There's definite rumblings in my pea pot - the compost is cracking up and I expect to see growth in the next day or two! That was quick

    Well mine seemed to make a very promising start, but still... after a week. Nothing!

    Mine are in the GH which may have been a mistake in this cold spell. They're swelling but may also rot as they look a bit too wet.

    Mines on a bedroom window sill with a piece of card/kitchen foil behind, we don't close those curtains so the temp stays mostly the same. I'll leave it a week and then chit more seeds hopefully I'll have a supply all winter if i keep that up.

    Just brought mine into the kitchen where they've been squeezed onto the windowsill with the rest of the clutter!
