Hi Tetley, no they don't need to be in pots at all. I split the croscomia into little ones and they popped up through. That pot has been an aladdins cave All sorts of things have come out of there

I sold some of my surplus last year and didn't too bad out of it. This year I'm sowing with this is mind. People love to see flowers and colour. Bowles mauve are popular and really easy to take cuttings off. How about cosmos? Easy to grow, different varieties and will flower in small pots. I think they were my most popular plant. I hope this continues as I've sown loads of them! 

Bee friendly plants also sold well, so if you have any suitable clumps, you could just divide them, a few weeks time they should have roots. Take a gardening book with you so if your plants don't have flowers people can look at the pictures. I've done many a sale that way

Best of luck of with it

Great name btw

Pulmonaria did well for me in clay and like shady areas. Mine had some sun for about 5 months of the year. I know the type B3 is refering too and that did well too

I split the clump of croscromia and replanted in small pots.  Would it be best to try and get these into their own pots?

Leggy petunia seedlings

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 21:27

They are bigger than I expected and they look fairly healthy to me. I can see there's some brown leaves, might just the first few leaves dying back. As it's north facing, they are probably stuggling for light.

I'd pinch them out I think, as they would then get bushier

Is the soil too wet? Little seedlings often get too wet and flop over. Leggy growth is the plants searching more light. A picture would help or a description of how you are growing them.

Really? Well I hadn't thought of that. Can they self seed? I've had this pot in all my gardens so going back 5 years now. I grew quite a few tulips in my first garden. Interesting
