Are your seedlings getting enough light, they are growing a bit spindly, you don't want them to be week.

You can always pot them on plunging them deeper into the compost, pick the middles out for nice bushy plants.

Crazy idea?

I have a turn over of two months on compost, but not inside a shed, it needs rain, ours is on bare earth for worms bacteria etc to get to it,  a mixture of greens and browns, hot sun on it. covered tightly, turned over every couple of weeks, I can't see it working. You could try if you really want to, the worse that will happen is that you bag it up and take it to the tip if it's not ready.

Wierd hairy dahlia shoots

When you buy a dahlia tuber it usually has a little bit of stalk left on it, I can't see it in the pot. They aren't dahlia roots. 

I suppose it's not a Begonia tuber? They have roots quite like that sometimes.

Cerinthe seedling plug plants

I've only ever sown Cerinthe in the Spring. They do germinate quickly, once you bring them on and plant out they will be lovely huge plants, bee magnets as well.

This is an English Bluebell, yours are not the same, it's too early for B as said before. I would suggest buying a pack for your needs.πŸ™‚
