    How long do chilli seeds take to germinate?!

    How long do chilli seeds take to germinate?! 9th Mar 11 at 12:10 PM

    Just after a bit of advice...

    We planted some seeds back on 14th Feb and I was just wondering how long to leave them before I give up hope of seedlings. We followed the instructions on the packet. We planted mid-feb, we've kept them covered and moist and have kept them indoors on a shelf near radiator. I've left a thermometer with them and it seems to have been generally between 15-18 degrees.

    It said on the pack that they should start to appear in 7-14 days and we're now over 3 weeks and there's still no sign.

    I'm a new to growing my own and I'm not sure if there's anything more we can do or if it's just a case of being a patient a wee while longer.

    We do live in the north, not sure if that'll have much bearing on things with them being kept indoors!
