My seedlings are stalks only no leaves!



  • I broadcast

    Its 2 trays and one root trainer.

    The only common denominator is the compost... I’ll let them develop & see what happens! It’s a mystery but in my house -bound state it’s now the most excitement of my day to see if the turn into something else!!!! 
  • Hi! Ok here’s they are... my actual seeds have come up so these are definitely something else... I pulled a few up and the seeds are huge not sure how I missed those getting mixed up with my seed compost! The leaf definitely looking like a grass leaf so those who said that were spot on... I’d love to know what kind if we can identify them as it might help me understand how they got in there ... also ... hope you’re all well in this difficult time x

    Bird seed.
    Maybe millet?
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    They look like the birds seed rejects i mentioned on the feeder thread . I think they were dari.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Ok that makes sense because we have a feeder near where I prepped the trays and with it being windy it’s probably blown into the trays! We’ve switched to a different brand so maybe it’s not as good for the garden as now worried we’ll have these rogue plants all over the garden (Although the pigeons are usually around the base of it to mop up stray seed.)
    Thanks for helping me work out the mystery- at least now I know what where and how and can avoid it happening again! Or at least understand it if it does. Take care all : )
