This is a record of how long this particular set of seeds took to germinate and how they looked at various stages from first appearance to the development of the first set of true leaves and beyond. I hope this will prove useful.

Variety: Hunter Butternut
Sown indoors: 15th March 2014
First Seedling: 23rd March 2014
Germination: 8 days
Germination ratio: 1/4 seeds sown

I always struggle to grow this variety but these are the last seeds from a Mothers Day present last year. Only 1 of the seeds has emerged healthily and I have now sown the last 2 seeds.
