    Mine have been down in the polytunnel for about 2 weeks and are doing ok. Will plant them out at the end of the month. It all depends where you are and the weather you are having.

    Thanks mate.
    Seedlings are now getting taller and are starting to flop over - is this a concern or will they be ok once they're in the ground? I've propped them each up with a plastic straw stuck into the soil but that won't last long.

    Min, pretty much whatever variety I grow, trail and sprawl all around . One even climbed up the pea and beam frame last year.

    The courgettes and squashes still haven't germinated, although a couple seem to have grown upside down, time to plant more I guess
