I have had good success with Yates "Winter Queen". I plant the seeds in my own seed raising mix (mushroom compost & blue metal dust). I use 4 inch pots & stand them in a container of water to keep the mix moist until the plants germinate and show their first two leaves. Then I take the pots out of the water and just sprinkle them each day until they are ready to transplant. It seems that every seed I plant germinates when I do it this way.
