Andy and Isabella I'd be slashing my wrists if I had that lot to prick out and pot on to you both.
I hate chucking out seedlings, can't normally do it even with the sickly looking ones I always try and sow only a few seeds rather than on mass. This year however I'm being really really hard and I'm not messing about with anything sickly looking ;D
Well chuffed with my Tig seedlings, got 2 now. Still only one Mimosa, I'd forgotten they were sensitive to the touch, always fascinated me as a child ;D

To tell you the truth chuckles, i do a bit each night and it only takes a few mins...i find it very theraputic !!!.
Watering everything is more of a problem as i need to either take stuff outside to water or move loads of things around into the gravel trays, let them drain then move it about again....it can be a bit tedious every night. It's not too bad in the greenhouse as i can throw water about all over the place but that's a big no-no in the conservatory.
Just got 11 more varieties of flower seedlings to prick out then onto the veg !!!
Tig I have 1 seedling of Echinacea magic box which is really only a couple of leaves at the moment. I'll try to upload pics later today but there is'nt much to distinguish it from anything else at them moment.
My 4 tithonias are all doing OK atm. Perhaps you sowed them a bit early They seem to grow in fits and spurts, and are prone to the occassional sulk - they never seem to like too much heat when they are young, nor do they seem to like sitting in wet compost, fussy beggars these Mexican Sunflowers
I think one of my gloriosa superba seeds is germinating
