They look good Kimmy 😀 I tried many times and failed but we have sandy soil so not a chance really 🙄

Thanks @linfoster I'm no good at seedlings but if I get past that point luckily the soil at the allotment is pretty good :)

Do you think these will survive? They where doing really well until we had that one day of high heat, I got home about 3 and took them out the greenhouse the door and window was already open too then the next day they where like this. The true leafs look OK on most of them. Its the same thing with all my other brasicas 😓 I was doing to well too (they are outside in the day and in the greenhouse at night for now)

They might. Make sure you don't overwater them at this point... That's how I end up killing mine, with "kindness". (Trying to make up for almost killing them...)

Yeah I am trying hard not to... Its so tempting @jennlamaye I'm going to sow some more outside to make sure I get some thing growing 💚 Thank you

Put them outside in the shade and keep them shy of water ! It might sound odd but if kept slightly dry they put down stronger roots

Id start over youve still time left to make some more, rather than putting anymore energy into something that may already be stunted.

I'd get some more but also keep these as they may well make it

I put them back in the greenhouse over night @linfoster I'll take them out again in the morning and leave them out.. We where supposed to get thunderstorms and thought they'd get squashed 😁 I'll hold of on the water.. Thanks Lin that really helped. 💚💚
