Extra Sprouts: Thinning, Saving, & Transplanting

See how & when to transplant seedlings from trays into your garden here.

When growing by seed in your garden, it’s pretty common practice to plant multiple seeds so you have a better chance of something germinating. Sometimes seeds don’t germinate, so having a back up planted gives you better odds. But, sometimes all of the seeds germinate giving you the chance to grow more than you originally planned by transplanting the extra sprouts elsewhere in your garden 🙌

If the seedlings are too close together, that may not be a viable option though. Instead, you will need to thin (remove 😩) the seedling all together. Bryan shares tips on how to do this and how to tell if the seedlings can or can’t be transplanted in the video above.

Tomatoes (the seedlings shown in the video) are grown 1 per Garden Grid™ square (no more than two rows deep though). For the plant spacing of 60+ other plants, check out our plant spacing guide here.
