Leggy seedlings

Same here Verdun. They are definitely better for keeping in and getting them well prepared first. I have given up growing the tall ones now, the wind takes them, but I had some lovely dwarf ones on the patio last year.

Leggy seedlings

Bit too early for cosmos, how big will they be before you can plant them out in May.

you could repot them plunging them right down deep into new compost then chop them in half, they may sprout out from the bottom, if they really are to leggy you can sow some more in March/April.

One year I took Montys advise and sowed some at the start of June, they then went on blooming  well into autumn.

I put a couple of tubs of it on my new long border after the conifers came out, more to improve the soil than for feed. Having said that, the flowers were extreemly good for the two years as I hadn't added any other nutrients to the border. 

I will probably just add some bonemeal this year,seeing as it was originally a conifer hedge,  or maybe not, I have piled a load of homemade compost on it , I don't believe in putting too much extra into the soil, the ground will take care of itself and rejuvenate what it needs by itself.
