onion seedlings lying down

Questionsonion seedlings lying down
Aidan Casey Staff asked 10 years ago

My first foray into vegetable growing, my onion seedlings, sown a month ago, in a seed tray filled with multi-purpose compost, on an indoors windowsill , where they still reside, are now about 4 inches long but refuse to ‘stand up’.Is this normal or what have I done wrong ?

The seedings have grown lanky due to too heat and not enough light indoors.

It is time to transplant them out into the open soil, spaced about 10 to 15 cm apart.
