seedlings grew very tall!

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 15:42

When you pot them on, plunge them right down in the new pot, right up to the first leaves Even curling round. I have never used a propagator, they come up just as well if you wait for warmer weather, unless you are growing hothouse exotics,

I cant see any advantage in dragging plants up in Feb, you still cant plant out until May, and late March or April sowings will be the same size by May. But stronger plants. I know others wont agree, but it works for me.

Just to add, tumbling ones dont need staking just let them tumble over side of pot or habging basket.

Can you get some taller pots, remove from the pot they are in and very carefully re pot so that they are buried up to about an inch from the first leaves, you can curl them round the new pot, they will then make roots all along the stem and be much firmer. Why have you got them under artifial lights. Have you got a window sill you can put them on, they are trying to reach daylight Poor little things.

I know some one in the Northampton area that would love some frog spawn, are you that way at all?

Allium bulbs

Try just putting a layer of sand in the gound and lay them on that, you want them fairly deep a good 4/5 inches as when they grow they can fall over if shallow planted.

Instead of buying seeds you can choose one from the supermarket, wash the seeds and plant straight away.

I did this last year with a gorgous little cherry tomato, all came true from seeds.

Helleborus

I would do as Fidget, as long as the pots are outside and you dont forget to water them, they can be potted on again and by September be well big enough to see.

I would just leave them in the ground, you wont get flowers this year but they will grow some green leaves and that will feed the bulbs for next year.

Of course, you can pot them up if you want, but then you have to look after them, watering etc, they take care of themselves in the garden.
