What is this please?

@Edmond-Dantes Looks like it kicked its covers off. :grin:
Just re bury the tap root up to the leaves and it should be good in a couple days. :+1:

I’ve had to straighten out a seedling before. Stand her up and tie it to a stick for a crutch until she gets her self together.

If you’d like to see an example look at posts starting at #2149

Be careful not to choke her though.

The netting is hard for the roots to grow through. They can get root bound.

So if i take off the netting and just use the peat to give the seed a start, is it ok?
