Do your seedlings look like this? It’s not unusual if we start sowing indoors early that we get leggy seedlings
I’ve often had this problem with tomato and pepper seedlings. So keen to get sowing and making a head start! Anyone else want to plead ‘guilty’?
All is not lost, however. Just pot them on and make sure that you bury the stems up to the leaves – it may mean that you will need to reach for a deeper pot than you were expecting, but buried stems will form roots in time and you should get a sturdy plant in the long term.Enjoy more Kitchen Garden reading in the monthly magazine.
