I had sown, nasturtium, French marigold, Dianthus and Dahlia seeds in 4 seperate rows in a tray using coco peat and Vermicopost mixture in the ratio of 1:1 3 weeks ago.
While I had successful germination French marigold and Nasturtium off a few seeds 10 days ago, the Dahlia and Dianthus seeds are not germinating at all. There are only a couple of step looking germination in those 2 rows since almost a week. What gives? I have not over watered it and lightly shower the tray with water whenever I feel the mixture is dry. This usually is twice a day. Is this late germination common aong Dahlias and Dianthus?
