I have great success with germinating seed on damp kitchen paper in plastic bags both for subjects that need vernalising and straight in the propagator. One recent batch proved too small to handle, so I smoothed the surface of seed compost and vermiculite, peeled the back layer off the paper, laid it on the compost and covered with a minimal sprinkling and put the tray in the propagator. Within a day about the same number of seedlings has I had originally spotted were up through the potting medium. I will let you know how things go. What experience do other people have?
