|I purchased the pot with herb seeds, followed the directions and they sprouted but now they are too thin to stand up and are growing any more. I used miracle grown when watering them, but that didn't seem to help. What can I do to save them?

|Tall and spindly seedlings are signalling their need for more light. If it is too cold to take them outdoors, you will need to provide a source of artificial light for them. I use fluorescent shop lights, keeping the bulbs only 2 inches above the plants and moving the light source up as the plants grow. As soon as your little seedlings get enough light they will grow into sturdy little plants.
