Are you sowing them in the open ground-not trays or modules or under cover?-or transplanting them?

In small flower pots. i tried one seed per pot . the same thing happens long steam  then drops and bends. then dies.started some in unheated greenhouse and some in conservatry same thing happens.

It is probably too warm-that is the problem-they don't transplant well if at all -so sowing then in a flowerpot will not work.

Sow them outside where you want them to grow -direct into the soil and thin out once they have germinated-they are a comparatively easy veg .
