I received my seedlings from QPS, now what?

Upon receiving your vegetable seedlings, it's essential to provide immediate care to help them recover from the stresses of transit and establish themselves in their new environment. Here's a step-by-step guide on what to do when you receive your seedlings:

  1. Unpack the seedlings carefully: Remove the seedlings from their packaging, taking care not to damage the stems or leaves. Gently unwrap the wet paper towel and plastic sleeve, being cautious with the delicate root systems.

  2. Inspect for damage or stress: Examine the seedlings for any signs of dehydration, yellowing, broken stems, or other issues that may have occurred during transit.

  3. Water the seedlings: If the seedlings appear dehydrated or the paper towel has dried out, provide a gentle watering to rehydrate the plants. Be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot or other problems.

  4. Provide light: If the seedlings are showing signs of etiolation (stretching) or yellowing, place them in a well-lit area with appropriate light levels for the specific plant variety. This will help the seedlings regain their natural color and strength.

  5. Transplant the seedlings: As soon as possible, transplant the seedlings into their designated growing medium, such as pots or garden beds. Ensure that the growing conditions, including soil, light, and temperature, are suitable for the specific vegetable variety.

  6. Monitor the seedlings: Keep a close eye on the seedlings during the first few days after transplanting, checking for signs of stress, disease, or pest infestations. Provide any necessary care, such as additional watering or pest control, to help the seedlings establish and thrive in their new environment.

By following these steps, you can give your vegetable seedlings the best chance of recovering from the stresses of transit and growing into healthy, productive plants.
