I bought some seeds of Miss Wilmot's ghost from Chenies last Autumn

Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

I bought some seeds of EryngiumMiss Wilmot's ghost from Chenies last Autumn, and did what I was told to and put them in the fridge for several weeks in the winter, before planting them late February . Nothing has appeared as yet-do I still wait? How long is the germination period? Any help please.



I've not heard that before - I've always sown seed into pots or trays in a cold frame in autumn or winter and potted up/on till they're big enough to plant out.

They will take longer than that to come up, I suspect. When they finally do, don't leave them too long before potting them on as they have a thick taproot that shouldn't be broken or bent round, so use deep pots.

mine took about 5 weeks to germinate last year.
