Transplanting process works well for the people who are not ready to experiment with seeds and or are in hurry to grow plants. They can directly go for getting a young plant for any nursery and transplant it into their gardens. This is much faster and easier process as compared to that of growing a seed.
Vegetables can be raised as transplants and then are ready to thrive well.
Vegetables like lettuce and greens can be transplanted in spring, when the days are cool as they would not be harmed by frost. For other vegetables, wait until you are comfortable out in the garden in short sleeves then you can plant vegetables like pepper, cucumber, etc.
Starter fertilizers applied at transplanting can help in faster recovery from transplanting. Make a high phosphorus fertilizer at half the recommended strength and apply 250 ml per plant to the planting hole.
In extreme cases the check to growth of transplanting can lead to bolting instead of the expected roots, hearts or curds.
Bare root means most or all of the soil is removed from the roots. They are dormant shrubs or trees. Plants like cabbage and leeks take up a lot of space and are also slow to mature if sown in their final position.
Before transplanting any vegetable seedling make sure that the seed is hardened off, well fed and watered. Prepare a weed free surface and dig a large hole for seedling. Then carefully remove it from the container. Firm the soil around the roots with your hands.
