|A Pencil Makes a Great Seedling Tool|
|Use a common lead pencil to make the first transplant of seedling from seedling tray to next size up. Fill your six-pack (or similar) cells with starter mix, then use the pencil to make the planting hole. Use the pencil tip to gently lift and separate the seedling from its seed tray. Then use the pencil tip to gently tuck the root down into the starter mix. Last, apply gentle compression to the soil-less mix around the stem and roots.

I ordered a 'type' of tool I had been wanting.
I got the Half Moon Pull Garden Hoe by DeWit Tools 63 inch handle.
This was the first time ordering from them, but it won't be the last.
Very happy with it and am looking forward to using it when it gets warmer.

Great mail order company with a huge variety of vintage indoor plants, everything from old favorites and hard-to-find varieties to new hybrid begonias (they have their own in-house breeding program). Large selection of high quality plants at reasonable prices. Check them out!
