Leggy seedlings - bury deep but that'll bury the baby leaves

    Hi folks

    Some lovage and licorice seedlings are very leggy.

    On youtube I saw all sorts of leggy seedlings being repotted deep, because the stems can become roots. Bit those examples had the baby leaves high up, near the true leaves.

    My licorice has the baby leaves at soil level then spindley stems before the true leaves appear. If I bury them deep I'll be burying the baby leaves. WP_20170720_09_19_51_Pro.jpg

    The lovage has several long stems all coming from the same point as the baby leaves, so again, I'd be burying the baby leaves too.

    What do you suggest (apart from not letting them get leggy in the first place:oops:)
    Thank you!
