    Default When to pot on Autumn sown seedlings?

    I had a frenzy of flower seed sowing in September, some have died or look a little worse for wear. But the rose campion have flourished - trays are jam packed. Should I separate some and pot on. I will have to bin a few - just to many to deal with...or should I wait until it's warmer. Would be nice to get this job out of the way!

    You know my motto (one of them) - Just do it.
    In a few weeks, you'll be too busy doing other stuff and they'll be put to the back of the must do pile.
    The seedlings look great - shame to lose them.

    Plenty warm enough round here at the moment, 13C today - I vote for giving them more space.

    Think you hit the nail on the head when you said pot on a few. Yes. If they struggle, you'll still have a backup stock. Best luck.
