I planted them from seed in the greenhouse and then hardened them off before planting out.
Yep, dug in some manure in January. Do you think the soil could be too rich?
The beds have been dug down quite deep so are deeper than they look on the photo.
i didn't put any stakes by them until a few days ago as I watched a clip on YouTube and it suggested that leaving them to blow about a bit makes them a stronger plant. Maybe that hasn't helped.
Gave them a really good water today. One or two signs of flowers.
