Not sure what is going on now, but thought it worthy of an update. The planted out seedlings either turned red or died away. Not very promising!. I then put the remainder outside in the sunshine still in their seed tray and these too turned red. Some are showing new growth from the bottom in green.
I did read somwhere that not a lot happens until they are nearly ready to flower then they grow rapidly. So I am not yet sure whether I have a disaster on my hands or not!!
