|I am a first-time gardener and on 3/2 I planted several flowers and vegetable seeds in clean yogurt containers (one seed per) with vermiculite, watered them well, covered them and placed them near a warm source. I have tomatoes, peppers, rosemary, parsely, and some other basic vegetables. The tomatoes, basil, marigolds sprouted. My rosemary, parsely, peppers and a few others have not. I am new to this so originally thought that in 2 days germination would occur and all at the same time. Now I know better, but what are general germination periods for seeds? Many days? If they do not sprout, should I simply plant a new seed or 2 in the same container then pull up one if both sprout? Sorry if I sound so simple, but being from NYC I was never able to garden until moving out of the city.
