    Hi

    I recently bought the following seeds online:

    Geranium pratense, 'Purple Haze'
    Geranium macrorrhizum
    Hesperis matronalis
    Petunia pendula

    I've never grown anything from seed before. Am I likely to be able to do this without a greenhouse?

    I have seed trays and a cheap plastic propagator from Wilkos. I was planning to leave them indoors at room temperature on a large window seat that gets plenty of natural light.

    Morning sandhun :)
    Yes your conditions sound suitable.
    It would be better if you could treat yourself to a cheap electric propagator, even a very basic one to provide a little bottom heat....it’s all I use. I have several varieties that have germinated now and growing well:)
    Just be aware of different requirements though...some seeds need light to germinate; others need to be covered...so read up before sowing :)
