Take a picture. Take another one in a month, than in another month. You will be shocked. They do grow and it is slow.

If they turn yellow or fall over than you should worry.

I'm having the same problem with my broccoli. On 2/27 I put very little seedlings (only a few leaves) that had gotten leggy in the bed and they have only a few more leave now. And those came within the last week. Did it take them this long to get over transplant shock?

I will have to watch this thread, because I am growing cabbage for the first time. My seedlings are still tiny, but I figure they will be ready to go outside in a couple of weeks.

What has your weather been like? I planted all my cool season crops a couple weeks ago - mostly from seed. The broccoli and cabbage were seedlings I started. Everything is alive and just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so I am not worried. Even though they like it cool if it just a bit too cool they will just sit there and wait.

We had a 3 week spell of 60-70*+ weather just as I was seeding. But it turned off chilly a week ago with frost Sun and Mon nights. everything is surviving.
