Thin Herb Seedlings Leaving Strongest to Grow
Water the top of the seed tray lightly as needed until the herb seeds germinate. Do a little thinning of the seedlings that are weaker, leaving one seedling in each cell of the tray.

Materials Needed

  • dibber or pencil

Step 1: Separate Seedlings

Separate the seedlings using a dibber or pencil, and remove each one by its leaves. Fill pots, modules, or trays with potting mix, and make a hole for each seedling.

Step 2: Transplant

Transplant a seedling into each hole, at the same depth as before or slightly lower. Firm around each one gently, then water well.
