    Hi All,

    I have all most of my sedling in a blow away greenhouse and they all look really healthy, but they seem to have stopped growing. Do i need to feed them at this stage? As i am struggling to get them hardened off and planted out. They have all been potted on a couple of times and im wondering if all the nutrients in the compost has been used up.

    Cheers
    Rusty

    If they have been potted on there shouldn't be a problem with nutrients, so no need to feed. I think the issue is with the weather at the moment, there is not enough sun and heat to bring the plants on.

    I have returned the plants that I was hardening off to the greenhouse over the last few days as night time has been too cold to leave them out. :)

    I think we are all experiencing that sort of problem . I have no heat at all in the mini GH so, things do not get exposed to severe cold but are not progressing a lot. Still alive and well though. And you know how good ole Mother nature can make up ground once it warms up again
