Hi there. Can anyone tell me what could be causing the side shoots of my seedlings to be turning brown. the worst affected are the broccoli but some of my other seedings are also showing signs. All are still growing under cover in my unheated green house. i was wondering if it was temperature fluctuations if I leave the door open on a cold day? Thanks

It looks to be just the first leaves that the seedling uses when it first germinates that are turning brown. I wouldnt worry about it. It's grand once the true leaves are formed...

i agree with mcgrueser only the seed leaves are involved and this was caused by wet leaves being scorched by the sun. main leaves are perfect.

My cauliflower went like that when i put them in my cold frame for a week.


Planted them into my veg bed now, when will they be ready??
Only started them last feb.

My broccli is flying, in the ground since March 17th, had them under the tunnel at first but now are massive. So keep faith!
