If you get nothing, you can eat the leaves in salads.

Reviving dried bedding, lost instructions

Interesting idea, Kate. I'll be curious to see how well they grow, i.e., whether the dessication has any permanent effects.

I must admit, I didn't believe that it would work at all when you mentioned it, so I'm fascinated by your progress. Which plants did you try?

What's the weather like in your area?

Sunny here in North Yorks - got up to 25C yesterday, and predicted to do the same today

Moldy Compost Disaster :(

Other than the compost perhaps not being quite composted enough, it would have to be a bit too much watering.

You might have better luck now with the weather being a bit warmer, so less condusive to moulds.

You can leave them in their pots and either let them dry out or keep them barely moist.

That new roundup gel

Roundup works by effectively making the plant overgrow initially, so your weeds sound about right after a week.

Lavender from Seed

I would plant them into individual pots first - say 3" pots - and wait until they have filled them with roots before planting them out. In the meantime, do take them outside whenever the weather allows - it will really speed up their growth.

Are you in a drought area? If so, they may have dried out in the hot March that we had. Providing that we get normal rain this year they should improve next year. To help them along, keep them watered and fed after flowering.
