I spent a pleasant afternoon pricking out these little tomato seedlings. The first two leaves are seed leaves. Then, when the next two true leaves start to show I like to transplant them while they are still small. Only handling by the leaves and NEVER holding the stem, I potted these up right up to the top of the stem so just the leaves were showing. This means that more roots will form along the stem giving the plant a bigger root system to help it to grow.
I always need lots of new plant labels this time of year, so I made my own. This is a 4pint plastic milk bottle.
Makes dozens of plant labels.
Meanwhile, under a dripping tap on a North facing wall, my Wasabi
plant is really enjoying life at the moment. Putting on lots of strong, green leaves.
Good idea to make plant markers, there is never enough of them.
I use milkbottle cartons as labels as well. They're damn useful. I also cut the bottoms off for pots, the handles into scoops. I've even used a lid to plug a hole in water barrel. I believe they are useful for holding milk too.
Great idea for labels Matron, I am always running out of them.
