The seedlings are still alive at least! I have to pot them up now and move them to another place. Think I have to grow them in pots till they are more able to withstand the slugs!

Aconitum hemsleyanum 'Red Wine' (and some "weeds").

PS. The colour isn't quite true in the picture. It is greener!

So far so good, Trond - is it often a problem for you to get plants potted on and moved to a new situation after they have been under the lights in the nursery but are still too young ( or the weather too bad) to allow a transfer outside? I'd imagine it is hard to find enough space and "fresh" enough conditions to move them on.

Maggi,
my problems are legion, potting on isn't the worse but following up! I am often away for several days and the plants/seedlings have to look for themselves. Although I have a semi automatic watering system in my greenhose, if badly adjusted, it is often delivering too much or too little water. Slugs and snails take their toll and so does the vine weevil larvae and other pests. Aphids can also damage plants in a few days and some plants are very vulnerable. Bringing plants outside too early can set them back for weeks! It is a wonder I have some left to plant out in the garden when time comes!
