No dig method for tomato and corn seedlings

Hello 

 

I have bought some tomato and corn seedlings should I plant them out now despite the rain daily (in Melbourne)?

I have also applied the "no dig method" hopefully it works, anyone has experience with this an would like to share?

I would have thought the rain would be good for the young plants.

Hi @crimsonqueen,
I think the cold will be the enemy you have to watch, young plants need warmth. Are they small enough to put a sawn off soft drink bottle over them to act like a mini greenhouse? Also, my experience with the no dig gardening method is it sinks majorly so you'll want to pile it high if you're working to a garden edge.

Re: No dig method for tomato and corn seedlings

hello @royq thanks for the response

you're right it's cold these few weeks a few seedlings started to limp :unhappy:

But i've covered them with plastic bottles hopefully they will warm up

the weather here in Melbourne though it's spring its been cold and raining

well there's always a first time hopefully will do better in autumn winter vegies :smile:
