How to replant seedlings
Young seedlings do not need to be planted in the wells of newly uprooted trees or stumps, because in place of old trees, the stalk zone is affected by pest colonies, as well as spores of fungal and other diseases. A young plant transplanted to a similar place, in addition to depleted land, will also receive a lot of problems.
If it is not possible to choose a new place for transplanting, it is necessary to remove the soil from the old planting pits, disinfect them and fill them with fresh soil mixed with fertilizers. It is best to do this fall, in order to get a new full-fledged seat by spring.
Before transplanting the plant is carefully dug, trying not to destroy the earthen room. When digging part of the roots is cut, small suction roots, while inside the earthy coma, are saved. Therefore, the more soil lumps around the roots, the less the root system of the seedling is damaged.
In natural conditions, the roots occupy a significant area, therefore, when trying to transplant a sapling, a large number of them will be outside the earthen coma.Without a significant part of the root system, the plant can get sick and die. For this reason, a sapling needs to be prepared for transplanting with a clod of soil.
If you pre-prune the roots with a shovel, without digging up the plants, you can cause the growth of a compact root system inside the earthen coma. Saplings prepared in this way are much easier to tolerate the transplant and take root better. To preserve the integrity of the earthy coma, it is packed in a net or burlap, with which it is then transplanted.
It is not advisable to engage in transplanting in hot weather, because plants can suffer from evaporation and dehydration, it is better to wait for cooler weather. It is best to store seedlings before a transplant in a dark place; the root system should be moistened.
First of all, it is necessary to dig a hole; it must be twice as wide as the root system of the plant. Dug land should be placed in a trough or other container, so that it was then convenient to mix it with humus and fertilizer.
In a pit prepared for transplant, make a small mound, put a seedling on it. Then pour the hole along the edges of the soil mixed with fertilizer. Ensure that the level of soil around the transplanted plant is just above ground level in the garden.This is necessary so that when the soil subsides, the root neck of the seedling does not turn out to be too deep, since This can lead to the death of a young plant.
Carefully tamp the ground around the seedling and circle the roller for watering. Then pour, let the water fully soak into the soil and pour again. After that, hammer the bar into the hole at an acute angle and tie it with hemp. If the seedling is large, then hammer in three pegs at the same distance and tie it up so that the ropes are taut. Pegs pegs carefully, trying not to damage the roots of the seedling.
