    Hi Bonnie a friend told me a trick last year to help her seedlings not get so leggy. One thing is to make sure that they get a ton of direct sunlight (so their not growing and reaching for it) and the other is to plant them in a tall enough container that as soon as they start coming up you can add more soil and continue burying them. That way their roots are really deep before you allow to grow outside of the soil.

    If they are crowded the plants will do this as well.

    They like room. Good luck taming the leggy plants.
