100 v. 0

These are the germination success rates for the sunflower and foxglove seeds. Thankfully didn’t sow the foxglove hybrid varieties that I bought at Chelsea last year. Will wait till its a little warmer. Decided to water all the seeds with water claimed from the butt since the tap water is incredibly hard (yup, it’s got muscles and everything!). I think that the tell-tale limescale build-up around the base of the pots was the give away.

Hey arsh, I read somewhere that foxgloves take a year from sowing to grow? But i may have been dreaming, or making it up

They're biennials so any sown this year will bloom next year - that's if they decide to make an appearance in the first place!
