When to transplant vegetables:

– Try to minimize the damage to the roots and slowing of growth. – Seedlings that started-off indoor need to get accustomed to the outside elements.  By increasing the hours you can get them exposed to the outside environment.

If the plants are soft and fleshy and therefore sensitive to weather related stress, cover with fleece until a week after planting.

Some plants are vulnerable to pests such as cabbage root fly after planting, and protection with fleece, insect proof mesh should be put in place at planting time.
