HERE is the BEST Time to Transplant Plants (2022 Guide)

Do you want to transplant vegetable, herb, and flower seedlings, but don’t know when the best time is to?

Transplanting vegetable, herb, and flower plants are not as easy as it seems.

Here’s why:

  • New vegetable, herb, and flower plants must be consistently watered, receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, & be kept at a temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit both inside and in a garden.

So if you don’t consistently water them they will quickly wilt. If temperatures consistently fall below 70 degrees Fahrenheit they won’t grow and may even die. And if they don’t receive at least 8 hours of sunlight the plant itself won’t grow.

  • Because the growing season is not long enough, you have to start your vegetable, herb, and flower plants indoors and then move them into a garden.

Because of this, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to transplant lettuce seedlings:

When to Transplant Vegetables, Herbs, and Flowers

There are two different times you’ll need to transplant vegetable, herb, and flower plants.

First, you should transplant your plants from a peat pot to a larger (5 gallon) gardening container once your plants get between 3 – 5 inches tall. This will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks after you first plant your seeds.

The second time you should transplant your plant is when you move it from indoors to your outdoor garden. You should transplant your plant into a traditional garden or raised garden 10 – 14 days after the average last frost.

To help ensure the greatest success of your vegetable, herb, or flower plant thriving you should:

  • Slowly acclimate your plant to the outside environment. Move your plant outside for one hour a day and increase this an hour every day until it can withstand mother nature for 8 straight hours.
  • After transplanting your plant into your garden provide a thick covering of mulch to help it ward off cold, disease, and pests, and better retain water during the summer months.
  • Cover your plants with burlap or a protective covering if you notice that a late frost may occur to protect them from wilting and dying.
