The Seedlings Sprout!

Seedling Update! The little ones are doing so great! Rosemary & Lavender are still the underdogs. Any ideas for the strugglers? Do they need any type of extra TLC?

my lavender and rosemary have been slow starters also.

All the internet-ing that I've done re: "starting lavender" points out that it's a really challenging plant to start from seed and that the time for germination plus the moisture required often equals mold that kills the sprouts. ALSO, it is a very very slow grower. bummer.

The buzz on rosemary is that it needs to be really warm to sprout and that its germination/seed ratio is very low.

I have 4 little rosemary plants (still in cotyledons) and about a dozen leggy little lavenders just up from seeds. I'll keep you posted on how they do.

Thanks Luke! Keep me posted. I can't wait for to finally use my home grown herbs for the first time!
