Planting in a plug tray
Using a plug tray is the perfect way to start seeds and get going with a big batch of plants. Try it!
This batch of Batavia lettuce plants has been watered and fertilized with diluted urine. It’s been growing nicely in the shade and now it’s finally time to plant the little lettuce plants outside.

I really recommend using a plug tray. That way, you get a whole batch of plants that you can start putting outside in spring, summer or autumn, wherever you find enough space in the garden beds. I use my plug trays for many different vegetables like for example lettuce, sweet peas, kale, parsley, and onions. It works so well!

When I was just starting up as a gardener, I thought that plug trays were for the pros only. But that’s not true! I make good use of many different kinds of plug trays all season. The small cell trays are perfect for the tiny seeds and I use the larger cell trays for beans and gourds.
You can find good quality plug trays in the online garden stores.
