Transplanting Tomato Seedlings

Tomato Planting Tip: As I perpare my young (3 weeks old) tomato plants for transplanting into 3 inch pots, I snip the white netting that held the peat pot together and pull it gently down to expose the roots to the new soil in the bigger pot. Please make sure you do this too, if you are using Jiffy Peat Pellets, as they may strangle your plants somewhat, and you DON'T want that!
