The Q&A Archives: Seedling Leaves

Question: I started some of your Wave Petunias and some Verbascum seeds in peat pots. They are growing nicely,but my cats knocked the tray on the floor and now I don't know which is which. One of the seedlings has round lightly veined leaves and the other is a longer leaf with deeper veining. The plants are still quite small only 2 sets of leaves.
If they were larger I belive I could tell them apart, but at this size I don't know. Thanks for your help, I didn't know where to turn.

Answer: I'm glad you were able to rescue your seedlings! You'll find the plants with the longer, more pointed leaves to be verbascum and those with the rounder leaves to be petunias.

Hope they thrive in your garden!
