Transplanting from seedlings help....
I've attempted to start seeds indoors with some success in the past but one problem I've had is during the transplantation phase to large pots. It seems like the soil around several of the seedlings would break apart during transplanting - leaving some roots exposed and diminishing the successful maturation of the plant. I use a seed starting mix - probably a mix of peat, pearlite and vermiculite - very light & airy.
Is there a technique to ensure the whole soil mix stays intact, thereby protecting the roots? Packing it down tight - watering before transplanting, etc.?
