Answer: Leggy plants indicate the seedlings are really reaching for adequate light so next time you start seeds indoors, invest in some fluorescent lights and keep the seedlings within 2-3 inches of the bulbs. They will grow into sturdy plants with thick stems. For your current plants, I'd go ahead and plant them outdoors when the threat of frost is over. If they don't thrive within 2 weeks of planting, you will still have time to purchase starter plants from the garden center and they will have plenty of time to grow and mature. Best wishes with your garden.
