I planted some Marigold, Dalia and Antirrhinum seeds on the 23.3.2020 in my greenhouse. The Marigold look great but the Dalia and Antirrhinum plants look tall and lanky. What have I done wrong?

Dahlias need a sunny location to thrive. An area that receives at least 8 hours of direct sunlight is best. Less sun equals taller plants and less blooms.

Snapdragons tend to stop producing flowers when hot weather arrives, but they will usually re-bloom when the weather cools off in late summer if you cut back the spent flower stalks.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
