Following the instructions which came with the olive, pomegranate and myrtle seeds, I put them into the soil today. Well, the pomegranate seeds not into, because they apparently need light for germination.
Olive Seeds (covered up by ~ 1cm of soil later)
I used some plastic filing strips to make plantlabels so I know which is which and when I sew it.
The olive seeds are supposed to germinate within 4 to 12 weeks, the pomegranate seeds within 2 to 3 weeks and the myrtle within 2 to 5 weeks. This is only the batch from the starter set; I haven’t sown the collected olive seeds from Turkey yet. They all need temperatures between 20 and 25°C. I do hope that I can maintain that warmth in my window sill. I found an old outdoors thermometer, but I’m not sure it is working properly. That goes unto my shopping list.
And this is what my mini green house looks like tonight (without the roof/ lid):
Greenhouse from top left corner clockwise: Myrtle, Pomegranate, Pomegranate, Olive,
Olive, Oak, Unknown, Chestnut
By the way, the twig from Priene has already lost four leaves. I’m quite sure it won’t make it.
