The begonia seeds have progressed well on the propagator. They have been under the LED lights all this time which has greatly helped given the very dull overcast winter we have had. I left thinning out the seedlings a little late so i may have to prune them a little to get them a little bushier as they a a bit stringy at the moment. About 10 days ago i planted a second batch of seeds and they have also started to germinate so hopefully i should have a good spread of well developed begonias this year. The Tom Foolery seeds(on left) have had a high germination rate. The Destiny seeds(on right) have developed well but the germination rate was much lower than i had hoped. These were grown from seeds gathered over the past couple of years. I will buy some new seeds and plant these.
