After a lovely time growing seeds, getting ready to pot on and feeling thoroughly proud. I decided about a month ago to kick on and pot up. So off I go and potted up everything.
The compost started to form green crust on the top, despite watering from below with cap-matting.
It seems that the compost had been sat in flood water flast winter at the garden centre and was sodden, hence it being so heavy when I bought it. The plants just arent seeming to be kicking on. Not only am I extremely unhappy with the compost as it seems to hold water badly but feel cheated by the garden centre.
Wgat should I doo, stick with the plants as they look ok but slow. Or get them set out.
The cap matting hands started to form white mould, even though I haven't watered for an age! Shall I put them out to harden off??
I have gazania, dahlia, marigold and cosmos!
