A few weeks ago we planted impatiens seedlings. Our seedlings were starting to get a bit leggy (tall) so we decided to repot them and spread them out. This will give them the opportunity to form strong root systems and nice, healthy plants.
Here they are ready for their move!
We filled recycled yogurt containers with loose soil,
then we gently scooped out two or three seedlings.
We placed them carefully into the pots and tamped down the soil.
We placed markers into each pot.
And they were ready to be placed back back under the grow lights.
Hopefully we’ll have twenty or twenty five plants ready to use in our new shade garden this summer.
More on that project soon 😉

We’ve been learning a lot about how plants grow from seed here at Bass River.
There’s lots of seedlings started under our grow lights.
So far we’ve planted painted daisies,
lots of tomatoes,
Zinnias and other flowers will be on the way soon too.
Spring is a very busy time for the Bass River Gardeners!
