these are my sunflowers do they need to go in bigger pots now or leave them ? thank you




What you are seeing is the cotyledon (seed) leaves of the sunflowers, Kate. You need to leave them until they have produced their first proper leaves before transplanting them. They are starting to look a bit 'leggy', can you move the trays to somewhere with more light?

i agree with BA. more sun and less heat if they are in the spare room.

Lucky you. It's snowing here :-((((
Try to avoid the seedlings getting a large and sudden change in temperature. That would shock them.
