Prick out seedlings

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden - SCD

All those seeds sown with op­ti­mism will now be through and they must be pricked out for grow­ing on. Fill a seed tray with suitable com­post, level it and firm the com­post evenly. Mark out five points along the short side and eight length­wise and start. Use a tool to loosen the seedlings from be­low, then lift each out by a cotyle­don. Make a hole ac­cord­ing to your pat­tern and lower each seedling in up to the cotyle­dons. Tap the tray on the bench, la­bel and set aside for wa­ter­ing.
