Figgin 'Eck II

Fig seedlings are incredibly slow-growing. The seedlings I reported a month ago are still tiny. But I've brought a couple of module trays up from the allotment to prick them out some time in the next week. The fact is, they're growing on vermiculite and water alone, and any feeding from their wee seeds must surely be spent. There are 80 modules between the two trays, and I've counted approximately 100 seedlings, so that should be about right. I'll keep the module trays on the windowsill at home until the shed's ready with heating, and maybe get them into the hedgerow about a year from now, depending on how they're doing.
