They look like cress! I sowed them about a week ago and they look like 2" cress, not anything particularly cabbage like. What are they meant to look like, does anyone know?

Weeble hello.

Think just about any plant looks like cress at only 1 week old

But if they end up like this then you are using the wrong seed.

...and my sweet peas look like beansprouts and my poppys look dead!

do baby cabbages only give you baby parps?

serious link this time.

Thanks Snugs , similar, but only two leaves on each of mine, so far!
Joolstoo, I have no idea! But, give the possible effects of Brussels Sprouts, probably not .

They sound about right to me-all brassicas start out looking like cress for some reason.

Thanks Mirage . They still look like cress, just taller, but good to read it's how they should be!
