Repotting a Seedling

December 31, 2018

Don’t overdo it when selecting the size of your new container. Replant a 2-inch seedling plug or cutting into a 4-inch diameter pot. If you plant a very small seedling in a much bigger container, it may drown in too much water held by larger soil volume or it could dry out as water moves away from the root ball to the edges of the container.

Now that the tomato transplant is settled in its new home, you can start your days-to-harvest clock.

Always choose growing containers that have drainage holes in the bottom, or porous fabric grow pots that allow water and air to permeate.
