Question about transplants

Post  squaredeal on 5/28/2012, 7:28 pm

I started tomatoes and peppers in vermiculite, transferred them into plastic trays filled with Mel's mix, and when big enough transferred them into my garden. I bought a tomato, pepper, eggplant, and basil plant from garden centers, and transferred them into my garden. The garden transplants had lots of roots, but wilt easily if not watered daily, while my much smaller, less root development, homegrown transplants have had no problems - no wilting at all. Why is that?

Hmmm, I'm not sure, were the store bought ones rootbound? Just give em a little time and they will probably all start behaving the same. How long ago did you transplant them into the garden?

I think it takes a plant awhile to get its roots working well enough to provide enough water to the rest of the plant.
AND the larger the plant the more is needed.
It should work itself out...
BUT it does mean that yours are the healthier plants... RIGHT? Smile
