Just a quickie ... not grown these before (seduced by Sarah Raven’s catalogue). 

The seedlings are a bit like mustard and cress cos the toms and chillies we’re getting the best bit of the windowsill. 

Anyway, they need pricking out ... shall I do them in small clumps or separately?

Im growing them for containers.

    One will do Dove, they grow big.  I only prick out lobelia in clumps.

    Hi Dove
    I've bought them as plugs with single plants in each plug over the years - they are lovely and flower all summer long.
    Each plant grows into a decent size, so I'd try and pot them up individually if poss.
    Good luck whichever method you choose.

    you can see a white one on the right side of this basket, that’s one seedling.

    Yes ... I think I was having a heavy handed day ... it was when this trapped nerve in my neck was just starting to be painful. 🙄
