Pricking out Brassicas
Here's a piccy of my cauliflower seedlings - pretty aren't they?
Now I'd like to prick them out into their own little pots (or should I wait a bit? ) and my question is: how deep should they be? Same amount of stem showing as now, or can I bury them a bit?

They are pretty Hazel. I sow mine one per cell so don't have to prick out. Would say you could do it whenever you want. You can bury them right up to the seed leaves.Happy Gardening,

I sowed 2 per little pot, on the assumption that one wouldn't germinate....except that they all did! Can't face the cruelty of consigning one to the compost heap - how would you choose....

That's why I sow one per cell in fibre pots - no pricking out and no choosing - if they grow they get stuck in a bit of ground - if they don't they go in the compost bin.Happy Gardening,

Hi Hazel they want to buried as shirl says as long as you do not bury the growing tip they look a bit leggy so putting them in deep will cure that and if they get leggy again when plant them out plant deep again but a bit early for Cauli though good luck jacob

I sow in a pot and then prick out into 2" pots then into 4" till ready to plant out. Pot them on Hazel a bit deeper as they are rather drawn and leggy.
We ahve also sown all year round which will be ready to plant out in late March or early April.http://pigletsplots.blogspot.com/
