Can someone describe what to do when seedlings emerge?
I was wondering if someone could give me an idea of what you do when the seedlings start to emerge. This is the part of winter sowing that I feel like I have the least understanding of and need reassurance about! :)
For example, do you cut gradually bigger slits in your plastic to "harden off?" How often do you usually have to water? How long is it usually after they come up before you transplant them to the garden? Do the seedlings generally require a lot of babying after they go in the ground?
I am not only new to winter sowing, I am also new to growing from seed. Last year was the first year I've attempted anything other than morning glories from seed. I did some zinnias because I'd heard they were very easy too.
Anything you can share about the final stages of wintersowing would be very interesting to me! Thanks!
