### What technique do I need for my next step

I have several puzzles that I am stuck on and am sure there is some technique that I haven't learned yet that I need here. If someone can give me some pointers it will be very much appreciated.

Here is the original puzzle from page 84 of the Tammy
Seto puzzle book. It is an Intermediate, 3 flower difficulty level.

| . . 4 | . 1 . | . . 3 |

What next step am I missing here?

Hi dpletcher,
Look at column 3 - there is only one cell the 6 can go. After that more singles.
