Some more progress, althoguh you can see that it is all the ones around the edges which are growing.

No idea why this is. Happened for the earlier sets too, but they do still grow - just slower.

Evening GB,

I notice your trays are not filled nicely level with the top, watering from the top does this, maybe the seed has been driven down too deep or washed away by doing so. What I do (It may not be the correct thing) is fill the cells with dry compost and firm it down a little. Then stand the cells in a bowl of water till I see the colour of the compost darkening. Lift it and let it drain, if the compost sinks, top it up again to level with the top, firm it down and let the new compost soak up the water from the wet compost underneath. Then I sow my seeds.
I think the problem with the centre cells is that they are not getting enough light due to the compost being to low coupled with low light levels anyway Wink

Thanks AJ, will try that.

Think you're probably right with the centre ones. Still, so far the reast are doing better than any have so far. Long may it last.
