I judged that the ones growing in the tall Elmlea pots were ready for "earthing-up". You may remember that I sowed the seeds in pots that were only half filled with compost.
I want the plants to develop a really strong root system, and I know that if you bury the plants deep in compost they will put out more roots from their stems, so I have filled the pots up to within about a centimetre of the tops now.
These seedlings will remain in their little pots for another couple of weeks, after which I will transfer them to larger (6-inch / 15cm) pots for a while, before going to their final destinations in May some time.
