Hello Mary welcome to the site. I'm growing dahlias, marigolds, lettuce, tomatoes and peppers from your list and it's the first time for me too fingers crossed all does well.

Good luck with your seeds Mary let us know how you get

Hallo Mary and welcome to the site. I'm retired, too. I love spending time in the garden and greenhouse but I'm not growing as many seeds as you. I have grown red Cosmos which I've pricked out, three types of Rudbeckia, Antirrhinum and Linum so far. I've got some seeds from the RHS which I'm going to try next. Mostly I buy plug plants, though, so the greenhouse and cold frame are full-to-bursting!

Hi Mary,
Glad you joined. I love growing seeds and I'm really fond of Rudbeckias. I haven't sewn any seeds yet because my garden is being altered at the moment and my greenhouse has not been erected yet. I'm missing out on the excitement. Good luck with your sewings !

Hi Mary, hello from me too, you will enjoy using this site I know.
Can anyone tell me how to germinate rudbeckias, I nver seem to have any luck!

I didn't do anything special, Andrea, I just followed the packet instructions and covered the seed trays with lids - like a propagator lid but no heat underneath. My failure this year has been Antirrhinums - two packets later and no seedlings. Too cold do you think?
