All my hard seeds are pre-chitted, some are fiddly but germinate quicker and more reliable.

Do you pre chit your courgettes/marrows/squashes?  I struggled last year germinating them and was wondering about prechitting this year.
Courgette!!! Stop swearing dear  :lol:
Yes the only seeds I tend to show direct is beans, I never pre-chit those and things radish but most others are.

Glad to hear you have a crop of seedlings now .

Have never needed to chit a tom seed as they are not reluctant growers , if i put ten seeds in a pot i expect ten plants if the seed is in date .
Tom seeds really want to grow .

Spoke to the nursery again and explained what had happened.  My conscience would not let me accept the replacement pack of seed for free.  With agreement of the nursery they have been donated to the people running the community allotment.

All the Shirley have now come up, as well as some more San Marzano, which I'd popped in just in case!

I now have about eighty seedlings...:0(

(Lots of chums here wanting plants so not really a problem, but just to say, that as this year is so late starting, it's not surprising that some seeds have just 'seen what it's like outside' and waited a bit...)!
