The tasks of early spring are mounting!

Pricking out seedlings.

Spring is undoubtedly accelerating as the days lengthen and the temperature begin to climb.

A few weeks back we started sowing lots of seed making use of a bit of extra warmth under glass.  Much of this seed has now germinated and needs pricking out rapidly!

Seedlings can rapidly get crowded out and their growth can stall if you don't thin them out or transplant them.  It is a satisfying job knowing that in a few weeks you will have lots of nice young plants maturing rapidly. However it takes a lot of time and concentration as they are very delicate to handle.  As is always the way the jobs at this time of year are mounting rapidly - and there never seems enough time to get things done!
