Seeds not germinating

Denis Reidy asked 13 years ago

I set seeds in trays 3 weeks ago for tomatoes, melons, aubergines, cucumbers & peppers but they are not germinating. I have them in my glasshouse. Any idea what I did wrong?.

It is not warm enough in a greenhouse in February to germinate seeds and they would need a small heated propagator or a heat mat.

They will germinate when the greenhouse gets warmer, although there is a possibility of rotting before that, especially if the compost is too wet.
