Just like other parts of the growth process, it is important to follow certain steps when transplanting plants to ensure that they survive. In this article, Savana will let you know how to successfully transplant and avoid transplant shock.

How to Transplant Plants

Before you are preparing to transplant the seedlings to your garden, you first need to harden the plant. Hardromation includes allowing them to slowly adapt to the temperature and conditions of outdoor, which may be different from the growth conditions they currently experienced indoors.

In order to make your plant properly harden, spend about a week before transplantation to adapt to them. In the first two days, put your plant in an outdoor protection area, where they can only accept some sunlight. Take them in overnight and water as needed. On the third day to the fifth day, put the plants in the garden, put it in a container overnight. If there is a possibility of frost, continue to water and cover it overnight (or put it indoors). If the temperature on the sixth or seventh day is ideal (65 to 70 degrees), you can plant it.

Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the plant root ball, the depth is the same as the depth of the current container. Carefully take out the seedlings in the facilities to avoid interfere with the roots. Put it in the cave, fill the soil around the plant gently, and increase the incremental incoming of no more than a quarter around the top. Water in immediately, keep the soil continuously moist and prevent the soil from drying.

What Is Transplant Shock?

When a new transplant plant cannot take root normally and cannot build itself well, plant transplant shock occurs. Some symptoms of transplant shock include the leaves of the leaves or yellowing and poor growth. Among some green leafy vegetables and herbs, it can cause premature pumping.

When transplanting plants on the garden bed, the plant should be treated carefully to avoid the seedlings of seedlings from being transplanted. Some methods to prevent shock include as much as possible without interfering with the root and ensure that the root balls remain complete and humid during the transplantation process. Watering is also important after transplantation, as well as during the day and outdoor temperature.

What to Do if Plants Are in Shock

Even if you harden the plants and transplant it carefully, the plant may still bear some pressure during the transplantation process. If you notice that plants may be in a shock state, this does not mean that they must be completely lost. You can take measures to save plants from transplant shock.

Trimming a small part of the plant will help focus the energy of the plant on the new growth. There may not be many places that need to be trimmed, but you can eliminate withered or yellowed leaves. Just ensure that the pruning plants do not exceed one -third. Watering is also the key to the treatment of transplant shock. Keep the soil moist, but do not water too much. Finally, please wait and see. Some plants need a little time to recover from the impact of transplanting, and it will improve over time.

Tips for Transplanting Plants

When preparing to transplant plants, please remember the following tips:

Be sure to wait until the frost threatens the past before starting this process.

If the evening cream comes, plant coverage or cold racks can help protect young plants.

Don't wait too long to transplant plants in cool season, such as green leafy vegetables and broccoli, they may fall off prematurely at a warmer temperature.

Pay attention to temperature and observe the temperature rise to determine the ideal transplant date.

Pay attention to other climate factors to avoid transplanting under extreme conditions such as wind.

The best time to transplant in the day is early morning or evening to avoid direct sunlight.

After a hard work, it is difficult to lose a plant after a hard work, but if you follow the correct steps to harden the plant and transplant carefully, you are likely to enjoy a prosperous garden.
