Answer: Seed starting can be an interesting process. Each seed type has its own requirements for heat and light, and some seeds sprout within days while others take weeks or months to appear. As long as you're using fresh seed, planting them at the proper depth and providing light and heat as required, your seeds will germinate. Rosemary, for instance, takes up to 21 days to germinate and requires temperatures of 70F degrees. Parsley can take 10-15 days (again at 70F degrees), and peppers need 14 days to germinate at 80F degrees. There are no general guidelines, other than the basics of moist seed starting mix, warmth and light for those seeds that require it. Exercise a little more patience - your seeds should sprout within the next few days.
