Seedling Workshop

Learn how to plant seedlings with Eliot Coleman’s soil blocks. Just bring seedling soil (low nitrogen, plenty of vermiculite, green sand, perlite and peat; Johnny’s 512 mix is ideal), and a flat tray to put the block on, and we’ll supply the seeds.

See how you can plant a flat of soil blocks that easily transplant into your garden. Just lift the block from the tray and plant in a small hole. The roots will be suspended at the edge of the soil (when they reach the air, they become latent, ready to pop out as soon as they hit your garden soil)
