    cilantro seeds-boy are they slow!

    HI
    I had given up, I soaked some cilantro seeds I had saved and planted them. It must have been two weeks ago I planted them, and last night they suddenly began to sprout!! who knew they would take so long to get going???

    I think I will try some more parsley, I didn't get much response from those seeds, and I think two weeks is long enough!!

    So exciting to see these guys popping up!!

    Linda, Parsley takes even longer to sprout. Up to 3 weeks. But worth t ewait. I need to get some more basil startred so I can make some pesto. I just cut my shives back after they finished blooming and already they have abut 6 inches more of growth. We have been having baked pottoes with fresh chives. Yummy.

    Well, I just discovered some ornamental peppers seeds that finally sprouted, I had planted those even before the cilantro seeds.I guess I am just a little impatient, but it is late June!! I know I should already have things in the ground, but I just keep starting new seeds!!! I love to watch them pop up and grow.!!

    cilantro

    cilantro , parsely and peppers like cold . [ stratcation ] . I have gotten into the habit of putting seeds in frezzer [ kills a lot of bugs , eggs etc ] , then into the icebox [ refrigorator ] for a week before planting . Then a wash with either 2 drops of bleach or about 2 oz of H202 in a quart of water . rinse - soak 2 or 3 days in kitchen window and then into tuperware till I see roots .
    Dig hole lay in sprouted seed , sift dirt till can not see seeds , cover with paper towel , sprinkle water . Good luck .

    If you mean peppers , my chili pikin [ probably spelt wrong ]. are in frezzer right now .
    Most tomatoes , tomatea-o's [ the green one with paper shells ] want / need strafication .
    My wife likes the little ones with purple top and the big solid green ones . Hard to find at store sometimes so , we grow in pots .
    They are in frezzer with a Jal-lo-mino [ probably spelt wrong ] 3 1/2 long by 2 to 2 1/2 thick .
    I have a box that came with frezzer that I keep the seeds in . One time the breaker [ electricity ] tripped , we were gone for week-end and people watching house have kids .There are always ice creams in there . The kids didn't notice the light out - any way meat defrosted and leaked on seeds .
    Good luck [ by the way I wrap the seeds in noebook paper , - 4 or 5 seeds and right what they are one them . eaiser to give them away - I give to people I know will grow , so if mine don't I can still get more seeds .
