I relieved several trays of their contents yesterday, pricking the seedlings out into trays of little pots or multicell trays – not stopping at the larger seedlings but also pricking out some of the smaller ones like the Dahlia ‘Bishop’s Children’ at the back of the picture below. Having started on the aquilegia I was surprised at how extensive the roots were even of the tiniest seedlings, so will continue with the rest of them. This is the stage I have tended to miss out in the past, so I’m looking forward to seeing how much of a difference it makes. I am also dithering over the different pot sizes so would be interested to know what others think – Bishop’s Children are in a tray of 10cm pots but I also have trays of 40 6cm pots – is this adequate for most seedlings or not?
Looking for certain topics?
