Growing from seed question

Posted by msbatt 7 (My Page) on

I bought seeds for Cobaea scandens, Thunbergia alata, and Tropeaolum peregrinum (Canary Bird Vine) this spring, but they're been planted sine 3/2/12 and I've seen NO sprouts. Is this normal, or do I have bad seeds? What's the 'average' germination times for these seeds?

RE: Growing from seed question

Not certain about the other two but Cobaea scandens seeds should be planted on their sides - I got mine to germinate within a week. Did you lay these flat or sideways?
If they are flat you might check the seeds carefully to see if they have rotted - which is why it is suggested to plant on their sides.
Hope this helps.
