|I sowed some splenden yvvones and peach and they germinated but now they are turning yellow. Has anyone delt with this. They stay moist and are in shade.|
I gave them some liquid fish fertilizer today because it might be nutrient deficiency.

Can you answer and help, since you've grown Yvonne's before.
That reminds me, I need to look for those seeds you sent me last fall-winter.

|I've always started them by the winter sowing method. I don't have any experience directly into the ground. I do know they need good summer heat to get them going. With the winter sowing method, they stay pretty warm and are protected when they are young. I transplant them to pots when they get their 2nd or 3rd leaf.|

I hope they grow and bloom with direct sowing.
You mentioned a peach salvia above. What variety is it and how tall does it get?

|In my opinion, they look too small to be giving them fertilizer.|

|Can you get a closer photo, including the stem?|
Do the stems still look okay?
How moist are you keeping them? Soggy soil isn't good for them, nor really dry.
What kind of mulch and soil are they in?
I think you'll have better luck next time if you start them in a container with good potting mix, like Duane suggested. I always start my Salvia seeds in containers. They are just too pricey or difficult to collect for me to take the chance of losing them to the elements and hungry birds.

|I'm gonna give it another try. They were in shade last time. This time I am going to give them more sun and see what happens. My other non salvia splendens seedlings that are in full sun are doing great|

|For some reason my Yvonnes salvia haven't germinated yet. I may have to try to start them again. Never had a problem before. Maybe I'm impatient.|
