Why are my salad box seedlings starting to shrivel and go brown?
Hi, i have spinach (F1) and radishes and mixed leaves growing in a container on the patio. They are in full sun and have recently been thriving. The seedings are about an inch tall. Recently though, some of my spinach seedlings have started to shrivel and turn yellow and die and the edge of my radish leaves are going white. The rest, as you can see from the photo are fine. They are in multipurpose compost and i water them a small amount every day. Often the soil can appear dry on top, and almost "cracked" and this is when i water. Do my seedlings need to be really soaked still as they would be in a seed tray, or should i lay off for a while? i think my watering is at fault somehow, as my mint plant is very wilted (in a small pot too recently transplanted) Either that, or the shade requirements, as you can see the dead seedlings are mainly on one side of the pot. Any ideas would be fab!
