Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

The plants are full of blooms like this in different shades of pink, purple and white Lexi. So easy to grow from seed and still so many buds on all plants to open. I grow some every year but this years have been outstanding 😄😄 @lexijane

I grew some from seed last year but they were very leggy and small flowers - what did I do wrong Hayley🤔

comment
hayleyaj

Well, your seedlings sound like they needed pinching out and then as they became more mature plants before flowering to encourage a bushier growth. Plenty of even light, I move mine around as they are growing to ensure they aren't starved of light. Give it another go, post pics of the the seedlings etc and we'll get there together! 👍😍 @thomasrat3
