You see I've tried getting some lettuce seed up and running but my strike rate has been appalling which it usually isn't.
As I'm a reasonable seed starterer I began to suspect the seed although they were supposed to be viable and not out of date.
Therefore in order to see if it was me or the seed I went out and bought two varieties of 'fresh' lettuce seed and planted them as I usually do and 'hey presto', wouldn't you know it, within four days I had lettuce seeds germinating and sprouting all over the place.
So if you every find yourself puzzled as to why you are having trouble getting seeds up try some fresh seed first.
Cheers and happy sowing
