Every time I try to grow my own seedlings they end up spindly and thin. Does anyone have advice?

Greetings and glad you\'re here to the SFG Forum!
My guess is you need light closer to the seedlings. There are many threads here on the forum about setting up a growing station. Use the search feature to the left (top or bottom of the list) to find more information.

Hi anne.ansel and welcome!

Yep. Thin, spindly seedlings are seedlings that are stretching out trying to reach the light. Are you trying to start them in a windowsill or with a light setup?
