Avoiding Transplant Shock in Seedlings

Avoiding Transplant Shock in Seedlings

This is my innovative way of avoiding transplant shock in my seedling starter plants. After a week of increasing sun exposure by placing them outside in their propagation trays for increased periods each day, I planted them today.

The the weather now is a bit cooler and a bit overcast. Tomorrow should be cooler too. I used my wire tomato cage laid on its side to support my row cover cloth which I draped over the tomato cage.

I used T shaped garden spikes to secure the row cloth to the ground. Perfect way to help the plants grow more roots while they adjust to the new soil. The roots need to adjust a few days before the hotter days cause more leaf growth. This should give you some ideas about what you can do to avoid transplant shock to your starter plants.
