Gailaan / Kailaan germination
Here in SE Wi we have had a fairly warm summer, in an attempt at a fall crop I planted an 8 foot row each of 4 varieties of gailaan / kailaan and 4 varieties of yu choy / bok choy. The yu choy and bok choy had nearly 80% germination in 3 days, while the gailaan / kailaan has had 0% germination after 8 days. They are in the exact same soil / light / garden and have been watered 2 times per day exactly as the yu choy.... Hmmm??? Does the warmer soil temperatures play a factor in the germination of the kailaan / gailaan?
Interesting, the gailaan planted in the spring (from a different seed source) had decent germination. I can only surmise that it has to be the warmer soil temps???
Any ideas / experience? Thanks.
