Tomatoes - 3


Well, I appear to have succeeded to a decent size seedling, none have shrivelled or dried up and they are popping up all over.
Now, all you seed experts out there, when do I prick them out of the seed tray and pot them on? I don’t want to disturb them too soon. Any help would be gratefully accepted

Wait till the first true leaves appear - the first ones are just seedling leaves. You should recognise them because they are a different shape. When you transplant, don't hold the seedlings by the stem in case you damage it - hold it by a leaf

Thanks Andrewr
I think I am just impatient, I don't know a gardener that isn't!
