Answer: Hi Anita,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Some leafy greens do take time to fill out. Feeding them too early can cause them to burn or suffer so care must be taken when applying any fertilisers or even worm juice (which is quite strong) to your young seedlings.

Prior to your next sowing, we would recommend to conduct a pH test of the soil. This will tell you if there is a problem with the pH which may also be causing the lack or stunted growth. Once this has been resolved and the soil pH is around 6.5, add a nice amount of organic compost and Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser to the soil and plant away. Avoid feeding the plants until they are showing at least 4 true leaves.

Kind regards
