Are these lobelia planted too close?


After planting these trailing lobelia, I read the label and noticed it recommend the lobilia should be 15cm aprt.

Mine are not even 2cm.

Should i replant at 15cm or will they be ok tighlty packed into the container?

Also why have the gone slightly dark on the tips of the leaves?

Many thanks

    Planting less than the recommended distance will produce a compact and full effect and not too much trouble for anuals but lets be sensible image 

    You have enough plants for several planters image

    I'd  space them out a bit - three at the most in there - don't worry about the leaf colour - they'll settle down, but keep them frost free.
