Cornflowers

RosieGRosieG Posts: 17
Hi, I have grown cornflowers from seed for the first time this year and they have done well so far. I'm unsure what to do next - do they need to be grown through mesh to keep them upright or could they be planted out into troughs? They seem quite big so I'm not sure how many I would get to a pot/trough or if they would need more room.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thank you!

    Could we see a photo of them to give us an idea of what stage they’re at?

    Mine blow over so need support. A lot depends on how windy your garden is.

    I'm saying they are doing well, I have no idea what they are supposed to look like! But they have grown and look pretty healthy I think! Any advice on how to plant them out would be greatly received as aware pots are too small now. Im not sure what variety they are. Thank you.

    If your photos don't upload try reducing the size a bit .... that usually does the trick  :)

    They look fine! I think you can plant them out any time so long as the weather is favourable.

    Ah, the photos appeared ... think my t'internet must be grinding exceeding slow.  ;)
    Yes, I think they look fine :)   ... have they been inside or out?  If they've been growing inside they'll need a bit of hardening off before planting out.

    Thank you, I can't get the photos to load the right way though! I have read that they should be grown through mesh as they will collapse otherwise, is this correct? Could they be grown in pots/trough instead of the ground? Thank you !
