seedlings grew very tall!

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 12:29

It does depend on how tall yoyr seedlings are frogslegs.  A picture will help.  All of us have probably had this problem so don't feel too bad.  I make allowances when I pot on by planting slightly deeper each time and they soon bush out.  However, if your seedlings really do look very tall and lanky I would renow a few more,  they will soon catch up

Hey, my rose will not be "lonely".  Certainly won't plant more but ....with customary arrogance () convinced it will look superb. have sorted out complementary neighbours.  All planted, mulched and sorted.   Some of her ashes scattered there....there will be a few places to do this.  My mum will approve I'm sure 

pretty warm work too, birds singing, sun shining and Spike lapping up the sunshine on back lawn.  So, it feels right 

Neighbours and overhanging plants

Peanuts, just something/someone to live with.  I wouldn't react at all.  I'm sure your neighbour is very nice in her own mind.  Enjoy your woodland garden down there

When to put plants outside?

Neil, can you put up a cloche or get a cold frame?  Or get a few boxes and cover with clear plastic lid?   Or turn the nest down on your conservatory?

its still cold at night so your annuals will not do well outside just yet esp coming from a heated environment.

Lyn, things will work out.  Just take time as it comes and not think too far ahead 

Can I plant young hardy plants out soon?
