I planted up 16 different types of seeds in little seed trays, put lids on and put them on the window sill. 5 weeks later nothing had grown despite lots of warmth on the sill. I used multi-purpose compost and watered it before planting and after planting. Did I drown the seeds? I am trying again now with seedling compost and not so much water.....



yes you could of overwaterd them and you could of planted them to deep better to know what seeds they are and what you actualy did .

I agree with Noseypotter also try using vermiculite with the seed compost I have done this with great results

... and were the seeds fresh, as this can affect germination. Hopefully you didn't sow all the seeds from each packet?
