They look fine. Before you know it you will be pricking them out and trying to keep up with the work. Whatever you do, don't fertilise them, you'll burn their tender roots.

Just a thought, I'm sure you have done, but have you some drainage holes made in the bottom of the trays spider? Has some one been eating a lot of Chinese? Wink

Hi Spider,

Don't know if this helps, Mr Fothergills, Antirrhinum, Tom thumb mixed. Sown 26feb, this is how they are today. Funnily enough I was only thinking to myself yesterday, they seem to be good to germinate but very slow to develop those second set of leaves.

u'r welcome Spider'

What other seeds have u sown, I must confess I'm an 'annual junkie' hence the name AJ. Last year was my first year at growing from seeds and I was happy with the result. I know where I want to get to, being good enough is for me, the challenge Wink
