Hi I am growing mint and the seeds have germinated. The only thing is it has been a week since they germinated and they are still only 1mm tall. I had them in a greenhouse - (plastic walk in mini-greenhouse) but I think the cold was stunting the growth at night so I brought them inside?? Any ideas or tips on how to make them grow faster or why they are growing so slow??

Don't panic. They'll be grand. Mine were a bit slow at the start too but they will start to jump out of it now i'd say with the warmer days coming in this wk. I repotted a few of mine yesterday after what seemed to take ages to get to a decent size... I think just be patient is my advise...

Mine were the same, tiny seedlings that looked like green dust and then nothing happened for about 2 weeks. They took off like the clappers after that, every time I look at them they seem to have doubled in size! Pop them back out in your greenhouse and let nature & the sunshine do their thing Wink

Maybe it's a weird hex resulting from using someone else's avatar?!!
