Buying Transplants

If you can't or don't want to start your own transplants, you can usually buy the varieties you want at a garden center. Healthy pepper, eggplant and okra plants will be unblemished and have a nice, dark green color.

Watch out for tall, spindly plants. Often these plants didn't receive enough light when they were started. Blossoms on the plant are also a signal not to buy. A transplant's root system usually isn't strong enough to support flowers or fruit unless the plant is in a deep container. Also, check under the leaves for aphids, whiteflies and other insects - you want to buy a transplant, not future trouble!
