If At first You Don’t Succeed…

I restarted the chervil.

I lifted the pots out of the tray to inspect them a little closer and noticed that both the chervil and parsley and long, wispy roots trailing out the bottom of the pots. Can you see them in this photo?

The wispy roots are the reason these plants aren’t growing, but what caused the wispy roots? Did I let them dry out and the roots had to stretch to find water? Or food? Is this a problem having to do with the nature of the newspaper pots?

I don’t know, but I’m going to try again. Im potting the chervil up again, and this time, I will be very conscientious about watering and I’ll keep the window nearly closed to minimize cold drafts.

Second time’s the charm?

Seed Updates: Onions and Chervil

I saw my first onion sprout! One of the six Evergreen White Bunching Onions came up last Sunday…day 11 since planting.

Still no sight of the Walla Wallas. I think I’ll wait until this weekend and then re-plant more seeds. These are older seeds, so I was expecting a lower germination rate, and I only put 4 seeds in that pot.

The chervil seeds are still growing (slowly), but the stem and cotyledons are turning brown. Is this normal?
