Geranium seeds (pelargonium type) sprouted in 3 days after treatment with about 1%
hydrogen peroxide. They were placed under lights also. I did not scratch them because the seeds seem to crumble when i try that.

Hey guys I have a question I'm soaking impatiens seeds for a couple of hours has anyone tried soaking those? I'm not that new to starting my own seeds but never soaked the impatiens before and just wondering if you had tried it, the last couple of times I haven't had any luck with them not sure what happened always did before so this year I'm doing the H202 thing.

Joanne has a thread somewhere about using blue plastic over them to block out the red rays. She said that increases germination.

Dear Allison, the petunia comes from a packet of mixed colours called 'Ocean Wave'. They come in white, light blue, darker blue, down to a very deep blue, in fact all sorts. If they are planted all together they are supposed to resemble an ocean wave, in theory!
A Verbena in flower yesterday and it smelt heavenly.
Regards.

Dear Allison, some people call them phlox and some cal them verbena. I know it is a true Victorian verbena and people get mistaken with stocks as well. Even in different parts of the UK they are called different things, and they have untold common names.
Here is a mixture for you taken yesterday in the pub garden. On the bottom right of the picture is a plant not in flower, that is the leaves of a verbena.
Regards.
Neil.
