Pricking Out The Seedlings
The seeds sown over the last month have been germinating rapidly in the warmth of the mist unit and are ready to be pricked out. Returning from the Easter break, Graham, Simon, Kieron and Ady pricked out hundreds of seedlings that will be used to help create this year's summer display. Choosing the largest, strongest seedlings from their overcrowded pot,s they gently eased them from the compost using a dibber, pencil or plant label whilst holding onto the seed leaves as they lifted, transferring them into individual pots or single cell seed trays.
