How-To Videos

Transplanting is a way of getting something planted or moved to the right place in your garden. But moving plants from place to place can be a delicate process and you’ll need to know how to water them right so they can adjust and thrive in their new home.

The first thing you want to do when you’re transplanting is choose an area of the garden where you’d like your plants’ new home to be.

Watering your new plants thoroughly before you plant them because your plants do tend to dry out during the transplanting process. Watering the area thoroughly with a Gilmour Flexogen Super Duty Hose and EZ Click watering nozzle.

So now it’s time to get your hands in the soil. Dig a hole a little bit deeper and a little bit wider than the container your plant is in. Carefully grasp the stem, turning your plant over and gently squeeze the container to loosen the plant. Place it in the hole that you dug, fill the hole with soil and then gently tap the soil down around your plant.

Finish by watering with your nozzle using a gentle spray to soak the soil around the base of the plant. The nozzle is easy on your hands so they won’t cramp up even after a long day of transplanting.

Your transplants may need a little extra love during the first few weeks after planting. So make sure to give them plenty of water as they adjust to their new home.

A bubbler is perfect for watering new transplants gently because it concentrates the water right at the roots without disturbing the plant.

Help your transplants get off to a great start in their new home by watering smart.

Now that’s a Betterday.
