hi peter,this is my first year starting tomato and pepper plants by seed.I listened to a person I work with and was told to start the seeds in february, which I did.I started with heat mats and grow lights in a 2 ft.x 3 ft. portable greenhouse.problem is,I started them way too early.all 36 tomato plants are getting too large,(I think). they are about 12 inches tall already. I already transplanted them into the red solo cups.I still have the grow lights on them for about 14 hours a day.I usually don’t plant my garden until memorial day weekend.is there anything I can do to slow them down without hurting them?thank you,barry | Hewitts Garden Centers
