Cobaea scanden seeds going a bundle, these are a few weeks old now. I may have to move them into cooler climate as getting leggy.. #seedlings-cobaea 🌱

Thanks Elaine, 😊 will do. The seed packet mentions grow on in cooler conditions but not cold. With our climate who knows, will add sticks and leave b for now.. 🤞 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Yours are looking great, Mark 👍 I’ll move mine to a cooler area once they get a bit bigger to stop them getting leggy. I’m loathe to move them into the greenhouse at the moment as the weather could get cold again or the slugs could find them and have a banquet 😂😂😘

You’re going to love them Mark, they love the sun and will attach/stick themselves to anything including you 🤣 @solly1961

Thanks Sarah, I'm presuming they're not too invasive and you remove and plant again, like a ready made annual.. @sieveheadsarah

Definitely not invasive Mark, I do have one that’s maybe 3yrs old, I would cut it back a bit and bring it into the lean to each winter, this year I left it outside and just gave the pot a good covering of bark chippings, so will have to see what it’ll do this year 🤔 fingers crossed it’ll have survived the winter. One thing about them is that they don’t get flowers until there’s about 2 meters of growth and they do flower pretty late in the summer and will continue until the frosts get them @so
