    Well, I just couldn’t stand the fact that everyone was doing their seeds but me.  What a time of it I have had.  Picked Snapdragons and Petunias because of the 12 weeks indoor sow.

    Good grief, between the pellets and size of the seeds, who knows if anything will germinate.  :-)

    I guess I will just consider this a trial run and see what happens.  Not gonna give up but think I will stick with my veggie seeds.  Even though I complained about the size of them last year, I will take a tomato or pepper seed anyday.

    There is not double that a lot of flower seed are small.  Be thankful for the pelleted seed.  A lot of mine aren’t and just sort of broadcast them over the top to the flats.  I agree pepper and tomato seed are a lot more fun.  I will be doing tomatoes this weekend.  Peppers are all done and up.

    I planted snapdragons and lets say I have a million seedlings. I had to thin them when I transplanted. The seeds are tiny . Good luck with yours.

    Dena  wow aren’t they small, so hard to work with.  I have tried many ways and I don’t think they is a easy way.  I love snapdragons, as mine self seed, so I am going to plant more th is year again.   Petunias are really slow to come up.

    Have fun, Carol

    Good luck with your seeds, Dana.  Yes, you were smart to get the pelleted ones…..they are pelleted because they are too small to even see, much less handle.  The seed starting thing is contagious for sure.  Charlene
