  • Hi

    If seeds are to close together this can cause damping off. Try and sow thinly to allow good air circulation. Hope that helps

    There has been big fluctuations in night and day temps with the sunny days and cold nights of late. If you dont get air circulating during the day you may well bre suffering damping off.

    Try not to have the compost too wet and try and open the poly for ventilation during sunny days.
