Some flower seeds are tiny and it’s easier to germinate them by scattering them on en masse on a seedling tray. Once they germinate, it’s best to prick them out and transplant them into either soil blocks or cell trays.

In this video, I’m demonstrating how to prick out tiny seedlings into soil blocks. These are snapdragon seeds, but the principle is the same no matter the type of seeds.

It’s best, in my opinion, to prick out when the seedlings are young – I don’t even wait until they’ve grown their true leaves, as some may advise. When the seedlings are younger, their root system is not as long and it’s much easier to get them transplanted.
