If you want plants in flower, you could get some forget-me-nots, which are available in blue, pink and white. They are perfectly hardy, if short-lived, but will self-seed. For `a stronger pink you could try some double daisies. In a few weeks both will be done and you can replace them with standard bedding.

It could be damping off, too. To prevent that, reduce watering and improve air circulation - difficult indoors, I know. Are you using sterile compost? If not, try a copper fungicide drench on what you do use. Also, try opening up the compost with perlite, and only water from the bottom. Good luck!

Does it have to be in this position? Most fruit trees want plenty of sunshine to fruit well, and won't be happy on your fence.

Geraniums not flowering

Don't go mad on the tomato food, either - over-feeding with anything will promote lush growth at the expense of flowers. You should have had flowers last year - I'd suggest that you don't feed before you have some flowers.

Is there any chance that they are too wet? Seedlings like to be moist, but not wet.

Where are you keeping them? Baby tomatoes need reasonably mild temperatures.

Greening up rapidly here too, and there's a funny yellow thing in the sky.

Any ideas? I don't recognize it...
