Transplant Tips

With spring in full swing and some days even feeling downright summery, seeing all the starter plants at the market is tempting and a great way to get a head start on your own garden. Farmer Koo has tons of options.

Now that you’ve bought them, how to ensure they do well at home?

Follow these steps and all will work out!

  1. Prepare the Soil: loosen, fertilize or compost and weed the soil
  2. Getting Used to the Great Outdoors: hardening off is the process of getting seedlings used to being outside in the cold and wind.
  3. Transplant! Dig a hole for your seedling in well-watered soil and set seedling in the hole, fill with soil and press gently, water and you’re done!
