Update – Chinese Lanterns.

My little seedlings are still alive!

 Always a good sign, when gardening. There is little hope once they are died.

I have been given two pieces of advice when sowing and potting on seedlings.

1. The roots compete for the space so place them individually or else you could lose the lot.

 2. The stronger plant will always get what it wants, in a kind of survival of the fittest kind of way.

So I have carefully separated some of the seedlings and re-potted them into the squiggy compost pots. And with others, I have potted them in a ‘clump formation’ to see if they curl up and die or compete for the space.

Time will tell and I’ll let you know. If you have any advice for me, ofcourse, please let me know.

Happy gardening.
