According to my gardening book ( I am new to all this) Jan is a good time to start off some plants that need a long growing season indoors, like alyssum. I did so a few days ago. The pack said they would take 14-21 days to germinate but they did so after 48 hours. They are on a table very close to a patio door. I don't have a window sill. Already they look leggy to me and they are stretching to the light. I keep turning them. Is there any hope for them or have they had a terrible start?!
