First HPS seeds germinated

I've started sowing the seeds from the HPS exchange scheme.

The Primula japonica were supposed to be sown as soon as possible. Well I didn't do that so I sowed them outside a week or so ago. I put some in two marked areas and then just spread them around. There is still seed left, so I may put some in a tray later.

I sowed some of the others indoors on the windowsill. Three of them have germinated so far. The first one was Salvia microphylla ex 'Cerro Potosí'. This is a reasonably sized seedling

Next was Veronica longifolia ex 'Marietta', closely followed by Verbascum phoeniceum ex 'Violetta'. These are very tiny seedlings - particularly the Veronica which had a very dust like seed.

The Veronica is on the left, the Verbascum on the right.

So doing a lot better than last year so far.
