Clever Gardening Technique

Make sure transplants are growing vigorously before you set them out in the garden. If seedlings or purchased plants are rootbound, pot them up in larger containers using a mix of potting soil and composted bark mulch. Then wait until new, white roots have begun filling out the potting soil before setting them in the garden. They are better able to adapt to the more challenging garden conditions if they have lots of young, vigorous roots.
