Variety: Salad Bowl and Webbs Wonderful
Sown indoors: 4th March 2013
First Seedling: 8th March 2013
Germination: 4 days
I had thought that both these varieties had failed in their entirety after they failed to thrive because they had been sown in the poor quality seed compost in error.

This morning whilst doing my ‘Seed to Seedling’ photo shoot, I discovered one seedling for each variety had, in fact, started to grow.
