packing soil around transplants

packing soil around transplants
Posted by Jeanette from Manitoba on 2009-06-12 06:45:00

I was told one reason to pack the soil around bedding plants was to get rid of air pockets. Supposedly the plants would do poorly if the air pockets were left behind. Of course in containers they say air is an important element. Is this an old wive's tale?
