Transplanting wilt & shock free update

emgardenerSeptember 5, 2012

Here's an update on trials to transplant large squash and cucumbers on hot sunny afternoons without shade, without wilt and without shock.

Plus some ideas on how to improve this for next year.

Based on your last post on this, I tried it by starting some hyacinth bean seeds in net pots. Beans, like cucurbits, hate being transplanted, so they usually sulk for a couple days. But the net pots were a success! I left just an inch of the pots above the soil, and eventually covered it with mulch. No transplant shock that I could see, no wilting, just growth.
