After a week, the tray of lettuce that Louise had sown had already germinated
Now they need to be pricked out as soon as possible to give them more space to grow. The idea is to let them do this unchecked.
Emily & Lynn R took a dibber – a convenient twig – to lift each seedling out, holding it by the seed leaves, make a hole in a new seed tray, and put the seedling in this hole, burying its stem up to the level of the seed leaves
Once the tray was full, it was put in water to allow the compost to take up as much as posible without waterloging the seeds
