Liz, thanks a lot. I don't know if my seedlings were F1 hybrid, and unfortunately, bought them from a large impersonal hardware company which probably wouldn't want to discuss it, but i'll try! :) Currently something is eating my seedlings .. I have them in 2 pots and 1 is surviving better than the other. I have tried placing some twigs of rosemary around them, I go out early mornings to look for the culprit - until today I couldn't find them, but this morning i yielded 1 green grub and 1 fat snail! any clues on natural protection? I don't want to use pesticide if I can help it. cheers, Jen.
