Looking good Kitty, so tidy and your plants are looking really healthy

A good guide is when the seedling has grown it's second "true" set of leaves, D9 I think they are starting to grow roots when these appear. I generally pot up into a small pots first and then larger ones as they grow bigger. Go easy on the watering at first.

Didn't check my frames yesterday, lovely surprise to see scabious, cornflowers and asters through today. Sowed 14 days ago

I've only got one tray up at the moment begonia. I've not finished my sowing yet, hopefully tomorrow

I don't know about the cloche idea, I've not really ever used them. Can you put them somewhere else, the grass sounds just the place where there's lots of slugs or is that the idea of cloches?
