all my vedge seedlings have bolted why ?started them off in bedroom , are they any good or will i have to start again?



You are trying to grow out of season, without light plants grow long and sometimes go to seed. Start again using white polystyrene underneath your seed pots.

Conservatory is better than bedroom window Craggs. I'm guessing polystyrene is to reflect light Dr bob? Conservatory has a lot more light...hope you do better this time Craggs! :))

Yes Karen, the polystyrene is to reflect light. Craggs, you could line a box with it so as to form a propogater, covered with a piece of glass, you need to turn the glass each day.
