HOS reassurance, please
This is my fourth year winter sowing. Every year I plan to plant HOS-style, but then I chicken out. And of course I never get all my babies planted when I end up growing them on in individual pots instead of planting them as hunks from the WS containers. This spring I really, really want to plant HOS, but I need to hear, please, about your own successes. When I've looked around, I find posts where people say they are going to plant HOS, but then I never see a follow-up about how well it worked for them. It's hard to imagine those little clumps of tiny, fragile seedlings surviving and then thriving out in the garden. If you would, would you also describe the size of your "hunks"? I've seen mention of inch cubes and I've seen mention of hunks that are a 1/4 of a container like a milk jug. I have a lot of space to fill, so smaller hunks would work best for me, but I want to make sure that I use whatever size gives the best shot at survival.
Also, is there a particular size range of seedling that this works best for or is there a size beyond which it may be too hard on them?
Thanks so much, everyone! With your help, this will be the year I take the HOS plunge!
