Wallflowers seedlings are crooked

I am growing wallflowers from seed for the first time. They have grown well but they are not growing straight but collapsing under their own weight. Is there anything I am doing wrong? Is there anything I can do to correct this? There are rather a lot of them so individually staking them would be a pain.....

    Have you pinched them out?

    Excellent plan , this encourages a more shrubby manner of growth , hence more flowers ; nice one Dove!

    Are you growing them inside? If so it could be that they need more light so pop them outside into the garden.
