Hi fellow gardeners, Si Jim and John very good looking growts you've got.:smiling:
Those sunflowers look very impressive Si, nice work.:thumb2:

As for me, the temps have kick started a couple so I might put them in a bigger pot sooner then the rest:

Need to keep taps on the moistness of the soil these days, as it is very dry now and some smaller ones have dried out...
Slowly and steadily they are turning out fine .:smiling:

ps. Nice one Steve.:thumb2::smiling:

It would be a good thing to do that, I don't know how much gardening like this you have done, and I don't want to teach you to suck eggs .
If you can get some garden soil. and mix in in with some of that compost. The soil should be a bit gritty for drainage.
Put a small penknife, pencil or something thin in to the soil next to the those larger seedlings. About 25mm away from the seedling .Ease the tools back and lift up the seedling, it should lift out with soil around its roots. Have your pot ready filled up to about 30mm from the the top. Make a hole with the tool, and place the seedling in. Firming some more mix of soil up to the seedling gently, apply some water with the dropper, and leave over night .The next day the pot needs to have a saucer, now this is where you will water , just pour some water into the saucer, let it be drawn up before you give it anymore.
Keep turning the plants watering in to the saucer when dry on top.
If like mine did , and your suffer from a really hot day and they wilt right over, give them a drink from the top , wet the soil and pour about 1/4 of a cup into the pot. Then leave alone, empty the saucer when the water has drained through, and carry on as normal .
KEEP CALM GARDENERS AT ALL TIMES.

Thank you very much for the tips John, will give them a bigger pot later in the week, as today is too hot (30C) to work in the shed where the next sized pots and compost are stored.:thumb2:

Another tip, if I may - when you're lifting them, hold them by the leaves, not the stem. Preferably the seed leaves, the first ones that formed. Reason is that the plant can grow new leaves if damaged, but not the stem.
