    Seedlings grow 2 simple leaves first, then 2 real leaves. At this stage you can prick them out very carefully holding them by a leaf, not  stem. If you are worried about breaking them it won't hurt to let them grow a little more. Ease them out with a pencil or a wooden lolly stick.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Do you have any seed left over?  If so, wait until April and then sow them in the open.  They may grow much better than the molly-coddled ones.
