Young seedlings left to fend for themselves

I have enjoyed sowing and planting seeds in the house this year. But, rather inconveniently for my seedlings, I am away for ten days. So I have planted them out a little earlier than I would like, and left the tender seedlings in the house with water and water retaining crystals – hoping for the best. They could dry out, rot-off from standing in water – or they could survive. I will find out in ten days time.


The lettuce and spinach are vulnerable to slugs, so I left a ‘beer trap’ we shall see who wins.

Yellow is dominant; there are some purple primulas in distance

Fritillaries need a damp spring
