I have just been successful in germinating some chickpea seedlings and wondered if anyone had experience and advice on what growing conditions they like?
We live in West Auckland, and I will be growing them in our raised vege garden.
apparently binn inn seeds are heat treated when they are imported so the germination rate will be fairly low, treasure the ones that do sprout and save some of your homegrown seeds for next year. They like warm conditions, just like most beans
My seedling plants are now planted out in the veg garden and seem to be doing ok. I have found out that they don't like too much water on them when they are flowering. So that might be interesting if we have a wet summer!!
I have a few seeds to share if you are interested; phone me on 027 2789 303. Regards Diane
