Starting Plants

garf_gwJuly 19, 2010

I usually start seed in small groups in small pots, usually about 6 at a time. Soon after emergence, I break up the soil with a pencil and pull the sprout up and replant it into a larger pot. Lately not many are surviving transplant. I think that I am either injuring the sprout or transferring a disease to it. How large should the sprout be before I try this, or is my method flawed?
