How to Transplant Seedlings

Whether you’ve grown your starts from seed or picked them up at your local nursery they’ll eventually need to be potted up or transplanted out to the garden. Here are a few tips to get your garden growing:

  • Water seedlings to be transplanted and prep soil of new home.
  • Tease out seedlings to limit damage to roots.
  • Gently tuck seedlings into new soil making sure roots are well covered.
  • Lightly tamp soil down to ensure roots are making good contact with the soil and your sprout is anchored.
  • Water, place in appropriate sun and watch it grow!
