you should have them in pots under the ground so if it rains too much you can move them or you can put up a shelter
i would get a light i think growing out side works fine but its a bit more of a risk

i dont know why you would get mould on seeds

dude make a solution of water and a little milk and put it in a spray bottle and spray the whole lot, should get rid of it. otherwise you can use a rose spray for mould or powdery mildew. try and get more circulation going around your plants.

eco carbo is a good product but i dont think it kills grey mould the best and cheapest is phosphoric acid at 5% 950ml water 50ml acid also bloom foliar 1/2 is very good for this good luck

Thanks for advice will try. Have been using a rose fungicide on germinating seeds doesnt seem to hurt them relatively effective but not 100% having trouble getting hold of eco carb but will keep trying.

I posted a mould question about six months ago at the time i knew nothing about it. By pure coincidence i changed the ag industry i was a consultant in and have now been working as an agronomist in an industry where mould prevention is critical.

ECO carb is a pretty good product it is a potasium carbonate product which works by increasing the pH of the leaf area and by increasing resistence by improving plant immune function through potassium nutrition.

However there are some really good products which are only available commercially (u can still get them read on). I am not sure which family of moulds affect weed but sulfur and copper have a very general activity. Early in the season start with sulfur based preventatives. If conditions look bad eg 10/10/24 which = 10 mm of rain in 24 hours in which the temp did not drop below 10 degrees, then you use a copper based preventative (kocide) these also have some erradicant activity (if u get mould thats it nothing can stop it because its mycelium penetrate into the tissue at this point anything that kills the mould will kill plant too). IE prevention is prob the only viable good option.

Prob the best broad spectrum fungacide is cabrio or kocide one is a dow agro sciences product and the other is a nufarm product.

Now although these are only available commercialy there is nothing stopping you from walking into a landmark or elders store speak with a friendly agronomist pretend to be a commercial farmer they will be happy to take your money. A big down side is that they are very costly and you cannot buy small quantities.

hope this helps

peace

unless u were sure a DMI's like triad are active against the moulds of weed i would i stick to copper and sulphate based fungacides because both sulfur and copper block a large number of biochem pathways in almost all fungi. Whereas DMI's have a very specific mode of activity.
