I water from the bottom. As Terry says, it's where the roots are. I assess need to water by weight of tray/pot
That pic is coltsfoot for sure. Got plenty of that but oK where it is.
I find the yellow polemoniums and the one called 'Hopley' do best here. It's a bit dry for the blue ones, the look depressed and mildewed.
Those 'Illumination' digitalis looked a bit iffy in the hardiness scale.
Or butterbur. It's one of those types of plants and you don't want it unless you're running a large wild garden.
I know those very well, they have corms that multiply and they seed but they don't have fleshy brittle roots.
Looks a bit like coltsfoot but would have expected the yellow flowers before the leaves. Mine have flowered but leaves are barely showing.
Are they hardened off? If they haven't lived ooutside yet I'd do that first.
My text disappears sometimes, usually when I forget to press the green submit button
The meconopsis do well in scotland in damp acid woodland type conditions.
We're a bit short of detail here.
I use peat free, seedlings don't die of that.
Growing in warmth then putting somewhere cold,or too much/too little water, that will kill them
That looks familiar and will come to me eventually. Marsh marigolds don't spread underground they make long stems which root down and spread that way.
Whatever it is, it's shouting INVASIVE. Let it grow some more before you get the glyphosate out, the more leaf there is to treat the better.
Good Fen blow today, might have to use fog lights
