Thursday, I ordered five more 200-cell seed trays and a pound of Super Sugar Snap peas from Johnny Seeds. The last time, I had them in four days and I'm hoping the same holds true this time. This would give me four weeks to get them ready for transplant. I decided to go with the 200-cell rather than the 128 because two weeks after transplanting, all 64 plants have survived and seem to be doing well. If I get the same germ rate as before - ~65%, I'll have 1300 plants. Decent, since I only think I have room for about 1200. But this time, I'll use good potting mix instead of some cheap junk I picked up at a hurry at a dollar store!

The trays fit in a 1020 flat. They are large enough - I started 120 seeds and about 85 of them germinated. I transplanted 64 three weeks later and none were close to rootbound.soil wrote:your 200 cell trays must be bigger than mine, no way to grow peas in them.
Sort of. Make a furrow, lays the plants' roots in it, then rake the dirt back into the furrow and around the plants.DoubleDogFarm wrote:1300 pea starts How will you plants these? Outside one at a time?
