Annuals flowers purchased in compartmentalized plastic

By: YC

Posted on: June 10, 02

Annuals purchased in compartmentalized plastic flats usually have pot bound root systems. If planted intact, the root system will be slow to establish in the surrounding soil and plants will suffer moisture stress. A preferred method is to loosen and untangle the root system without breaking the soil ball. Plants recover rapidly and establish quickly. Tall and spindly plants should be pruned to half their original size to produce more attractive plants with more flowers.
