Transplanting Flamingos

Last weekend I was busy transplanting my first batch of tomato seedlings. The first variety I have sown this year is a new plum variety called Flamingo, offered by Chiltern Seeds. I am super excited about these and am so in love with the name. Here is their journey from seed packet so far!


When transplanting seedlings it is best to do when the soil is moist and neither too wet or too dry. Too wet means removing the seedling from the tray is near on impossible and there will be guaranteed root damage in the process. Too dry means the soil will crumble away and again there is a possible chance the roots will become damaged.

These tomatoes were started off indoors and now the temperatures are warmer they will be spending their days out in the portable greenhouse and nights moved indoors as the night temperatures are still a little low. Over the next few weeks they should grow on well and can then be planted out at the allotment.
