Help me identify shoots please

Hi Alan, growing some veg here for the first time. The first pic looks a lot like creeping buttercup to me ......... if it is I would get rid of it, there's loads of it  here and it can spread and strangle a lot of other plants

I'm excited at the prospect of being able to eat something that I've grown, good luck

Thanks Dan, I do have a few. Just that they seem so small that even the smallest pot would dwarf them. What did you put them in? Sounds like it has worked for you

 

 

Will my winter pansies ever flower?

I've grown pansies and violas that have taken ages to flower....... I have found that once going if you dead head the flowers they should bush up

Thanks nut, they seem so small, took  2 months to germinate them so don't want to lose them. I'm finding it hard to believe that they will grow into  tall plants with flowers this year.

Will leave them be as they are growing where they are and just keep adding water

 

What did you do in your garden today?

Hello everyone,

I've got a lot of little Verbena B seedlings in a couple of small seed trays. They are growing but seem to be very slow. They are still tiny but many have 3 sets of leaves. Is this rate of growth normal for them?

The trays aren't the best and the soil is a bit compacted....but they are growing. Do you think it's best to pot on? will this speed up their growth?

Thanks for any information
