Our tomatoes didn’t get off to a very good start. There were many disappointed mornings of peering into barren plant pots and moving the tub into new optimum sunlight spots. Good old cling film came to the rescue when I had a brainwave whilst wrapping sandwiches, it’s when I have all my best ideas. We turned the tub into a mini greenhouse with a layer of clingfilm across the top. This made the environment warm and moist enough for the seeds to germinate – it felt like almost instantly!
There was obviously a bit of a strange distribution of seeds but we will carefully transplant each little seedling into his (oh dear, I’m getting attached – ‘his’) own pot when they get a bit stronger.
I’m sure there will be more updates now we’ve got over the embarrassment of empty pots!
