Growing from seed

Hi, little bee.....fraid this seems like too much water in the compost.....it won't harm your seedlings as such, but do let the compost dry out a little.

IMHO, more seedlings are killed by too much water than by all other issues combined........careful with the soil moisture level, it really is that simple.

I know achieving the right moisture level is difficult when you first set out, so I would suggest investing in a moisture meter until you get the hang of it....they're very cheap.

No need to apologise to me, Mike and as you say it makes it easier because you haven't registered many posts.

What I intended to convey that it's irritating when it becomes just a fad and we don't know who we're replying to anymore.

Changing forum names really, really annoys me!  You wouldn't do it in real life and expect to be recognised...... now would you??

Ermm...nice take, Panda, but the fritillary looks to be in a spot of bother.

"I think much more should be done for us, how about Coronation Street allotments, East Enders veg patch. Big Brothers cutting garden, Simon Cowell up to his elbows in muck.Get me out of here, a jungle garden special."

You mean Arthur Fowler doesn't have an allotment anymore???

Let you into a secret I'm not fussed about sweetpeas, I spent more time deadheading than enjoying the perfume. I'm wearing my tin hat

 I agree, FG..... I know I've posted this one elsewhere before, but it does illustrate what you are saying......flower, Surfinia.

Note. The camera lens I was using then didn't have quality as present ones.
