I just started bringing my seedlings outdoors today as it hasn't really warmed up enough until now to do so. Due to personal time contraints, I really need to get all my plants into the ground within the next week and a half, but I don't really have days to spend transplanting. Therefore, I would like to get what I can in the ground this weekend. That would only be 4-5 days of being acclimated to the outdoors.
Is it safe to plant anything in that short a timeframe? My focus this weekend would be to try to get all my marigolds, lettuce, onions and broccoli transplanted. Do you think they will survive?
And my seedlings aren't that big either cuz I got a late start. The broccoli is a few inches high and has about 3 sets of leaves, but 2 or 3 are stunted and are only about an inch high with only 2 sets of leaves. My onions are about 6-8 inches high. I only have 8 lettuce plants and some are pretty big, but some are still small - maybe 2 inches, but all have 2-3 sets of leaves. Most of the marigolds are a pretty good size, but a few are small, but all have at least 2-3 sets of leaves, most have much, more though and some are almost blooming.
Then throughout next week I have basil, cilantro, celery to plant, and then I can wait until next weekend to plant my tomatoes and peppers. Then, of course, I need to direct plant stuff as well.
Any suggestions will help!
