Hi All fellow Gardeners.

 

I bought some european seeds from GG and sowed it into small plastic pots.

Like the one showed in GG's blogspot.

Heres my last weeks pic

The plants germinated well and now they are about to grow 2nd set of true leaves. Now my question is when do I transplant them to the ground?

And what do I need to take care of when transplanting, as I have read that they dont transplant well, but still gone ahead, inspiration from GG's post.

 

Your inputs would be of a great help.

 

thanks

krinish

When to Transplant cucumber seedlings?

when they are too big for their current container ? : )

if you are the one that will be watering them they look ok to plant outdoors in the open soil (just in case they get damaged, depending on the watering method & who is watering)

they look nice & healthy. make sure that their rootball is, as is.. when transplanting..like you were putting the whole thing there just minus the pot,.. & all should be well i think. depending on your growing media, try & see that the soil is slightly damp .. moist.. not too wet.. just enough to ease them out of the pot gently.

its good that you have one plant per pot too – i usually don't like using stuff like plastic bags.. but maybe you can use a plastic sheet as an option in such situations if you are unsure [line the pot with the plastic sheet..make holes in it alongside the holes in yuor pot.. then fill it with soil ] then when you need to transplant just pull the plastic sheet out along with the soil & your sappling.

good luck!
