P2P More Herbs

Today I pricked to the packs parsley, basil, and thyme.
Above are the parsley seedlings and the tools to transplant them. Below is the final outcome. I usually keep some extra seedlings in the germination pot until I'm sure that the ones in the pack have got a good start.

This is the basil and thyme.

I want to call your attention to the depth of the soil mix in the packs. I used to fill them up to close to the top and put the seedlings in them. A few years ago I realized that if I only filled the cells about a third full and put the seedlings in them that they grew better. This allows me to add some soil mix as the seedlings grow. Notice how deep the thyme is place in the cells.
