Trouble with oregano and rudbeckia seedlings
I'm in the San Diego area growing rudbeckia and oregano seedlings outside in small 4" and 2" respectively in breathable pots.
I know it's really an odd time since it's so warm to do seedlings, but we have such a long summer that they do well if I can at least get them to grow more!
I know the oregano are slow but I occasionally lose a seedling to underwatering, overwatering, or due to the simple act of watering. I grow other seedlings but the problem of these is both Rudbeckia and Oregano seedlings are so low to the ground that when watering them, the water often goes right over them. I don't want to give them damping off, or any mildew.
I've had bad luck with watering from below with other seedlings but I will try on these. I know I need to let the Oregano dry out but too dry and and they wilt.
My plan is once they get big enough to move them to their permanent containers.
Any suggestions on how to not lose these? Thanks!
