Never had a garden before, now own 150 foot long space! Split in to three levels it needs a lot of TLC! Looking to share ideas and advice. Love DIY!

I’m guessing this is not what my chinese lantern should look like. It was grown from seed October but it just doesn’t seem to pick up. Never mind, might free up a pot for something else, at least I tried #itsokaytofail

Perhaps it’s not liking the compost, try planting it out - they are usually quite vigorous 😊

My chinese lantern seedlings 😀 very slow growing but I’m hoping they’ll improve a bit by spring to plant outside.

Yours are way ahead of mine @karolinas mine haven't even shown their faces, wonder if it's too cold in my greenhouse

@jpea mine lives on the kitchen window seal, but it has been that size for weeks now and I sowed it months ago!

Oh my word. No wonder I’ve had no success with these in the garden. I pull them up as weeds ☹️
