10 Nov 14 Kelly (Australia - tropical climate)
We have brought two sets of different brands of spring onion seeds and neither have done anything not even germinated. The packets said they can be planted now. We have been watering and fertilising but the garden beds are new and dont have a lot of nutrients. But I would expect they would sprout and then not thrive not have nothing comeup. Any tips or ideas as to why this may be. Many thanks
