If you purchased bedding plants, or started your seeds indoors in pots dig a small hole which is slightly wider and deeper than the root ball of the new plant.

Water the plant thoroughly prior to planting it out in the garden to lessen the shock of transplant. Gently tap the pot to loosen the roots and remove the new plant. If the root ball is tangled and compacted, use your finger tips to gently loosen the outer roots.

Set the plant into the hole sightly deeper than it was growing in the pot, and firm the soil in around it, making certain that there is good soil/root contact. Water in well.....

We started our seeds indoors then transplanted into larger container's and put outside in our greenhouse . Above picture's are of some of our corn and cucumber seedlings that we already transplanted into larger pots.

Next step will be putting them into the ground when we are pretty sure there will be no more freezing nights.
