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

I emptied out a pot full of croscomia that I'd been carrying around with me for ages. Managed to split the crocrosmia, salvaged some self sown jacobs ladder and bleeding heart. They've been in there for ages but this is now popping up. It's leaves are slowly unfurling, I don't think I've seen it before.


It's about 1.5 " tall Thanks for any ideas

Gorgeous day here, at one point I was down to a t shirt, a first for the year Not a huge amount to do, just waiting for the seedlings to grow big enough to prick out. Still managed to spend most of the day outside. Rediscovered some perennials, over wintered in pots, thank you seed swop

Love the frame tigs and the lupins

I've got a couple of blue ones which are in are those old galvinised metal buckets/baths. I've never had a problem with snails, even though I've been expecting it
