Thanks for this great info. I've always wondered why one would start the seeds in small pots/trays and then transplant to a bigger pot. Isn't transplanting hard on the plants? Why not just start them in the bigger pot that they will be in for the entire greenhouse time?


I start my seeds in seed trays that I put on heat mats to help facilitate germination. The seed trays also allow me to start a lot of seeds in a small space and space is a premium in a small greenhouse like mine.
Transplanting is not hard on most plants - with squash plants being the exception. They don't like to have their roots messed with. Most other plants are stimulated to grow by tussling the roots a little bit when you transplant.


Why use an unsustainable product like peatmoss...
