    Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I can't find where else to put it.
    I have been given some Billarderia seeds. Can someone please advise me on how to sow them, eg should I put them in a propagator, etc.
    Thank you.

    Fresh seed germinates well, older seed can be slow at best.
    Surface sow with a thin covering of vermiculite over the seed. Cool room (about 15°c) in a light spot but not direct sun.

      You can buy fine grade vermiculite which is ideal from Poundshop.

      Thanks, I've got some but I'll try to get the fine one you suggest. Is poundshop the name of the shop ? I don't think I've seen any around here only Poundland and Poundworld. I'll try those when I go to the town .
