    Hello. I just got these seeds today, 8 of them. They are awfully small. Are they correct? Do I just sow them lightly on top of the compost? Thank you in advance.

      You can very lightly cover them if you want. I don't think that they need light to germinate. It's a very long time since I sowed any.
      Looks like you have more than 8.

      Very similar to tomato seed.

      Just keep moist and they should be up in a week or so.

        Thanks Pete. Yes, I noticed more than 8. I also got some Vigna Snail Vine seeds. It says 5 but I got 6. :smile: I shall get sowng in a couple of hours when it cools down.

        A strange site, says Greece but the company is in Germany and came from Germany. Mostly edibles but some odd nice flowers ...
