Repotting Impatiens Seedlings

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.

imageHere they are ready for their move!

imageWe filled recycled yogurt containers with loose  soil,

imagethen we gently scooped out two or three seedlings.

imageWe placed them carefully into the pots and tamped down the soil.

imageWe placed markers into each pot.

imageAnd 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 😉

Happy Spring!
