Transplanting seedlings and plants can be a tricky process. These gardening tips will help take the guesswork out of the process and help ensure that your plants are healthy and happy as you move them into and around your garden.
- Transplant seedlings when they are very young. Peat pots make this easy to do since the container provides a source of immediate nourishment once the seedling is in the soil.
- Less than 10 days before you transplant your seedlings, set them outside in the shade for a few hours a day. This will help them easily acclimate to the outdoor environment.
- Make sure your seedlings are ready to be transplanted. Each plant is different, and you should follow the seed guide carefully so that you don’t plant seedlings that might not be ready. You will also want to carefully watch the weather and time your planting carefully. Drizzly, overcast weather is ideal. If you can’t wait for rain, make sure to moisten the soil when you put the pots in the ground.
