ET Seeds 2006 - I'm finding germination this week

Hi --- How are you all doing with your ET seeds...I know there were concerns from some that they may have been dry this year.

I had no visible signs of germination over the weekend, but in the last 2 days - 11 weeks from sowing - things are beginning to look quite promising.

From 40-60% germination with Melissa, Vicki, Corrie, 20% with Mrs Betty Ranicar and Julie. I really expect to find more germination over the next several days...

Hopefully yours are doing well too :)

RE: ET Seeds 2006 - I'm finding germination this week

When I received mine they also were quite dry. I added a bit of vermiculite and a few drops of water to each little pack, and put them in the butter compartment of the refrigerator. I noticed they were starting to sprout roots about 3 weeks ago, and last week planted them all in pots and placed outside. All 8 types I had ordered showed about half the seeds had formed roots, but in none had all the seeds started. I guess now I wait to see the cotyledons rise out of the mix.
