Maximize success and minimize shock by following these simple tips for transplanting seedlings into your garden. Transplanting seedlings correctly can make the difference between a great garden, good or poor producing garden. I have seen many plants never overcome poor transplanting practices. Using the tips from the Mittleider Gardening Course book, I show how you can easily transplant your seedlings to your garden to minimize shock and maximize success.

    David – How did you get your garden so free of grass and weeds? It looks as though you've taken a sod ripper in there and pulled the turf free of your garden. Thanks, Christie

    Y'all have it rougher out west. Hardly any rain. But it does seem like we have more weeds to contend with here in the south. I'm in Georgia.

    Wow, you've got a lot of rocks! I have the opposite … clay-based, with the occasional rock. I bet you could rake a bunch of them to separate, then either sell them to people landscaping or use as a mulch around other things, trees, etc. I also do the berms around all my plants and water the same way you do! It has never made sense to me to put a sprinkler on & water the whole garden, it's expensive and just grows weeds between the rows! I make "bowls" around the plants like tomatoes & peppers etc, it makes watering a lot easier, and it's better to give the same amount of water each time to prevent cracking. I like the way you started the corn, I am going to do the same thing for next year because I had 100% germination as well, but, yeah, a number of inferior plants (my own fault for over-sowing) and it wasn't till later on that it became obvious that I should have gone with my gut & thinned those ones. Lesson learned!
    Anyway, thanks for the great video! I like the idea of buying big bags of individual nutrients, I'll have to check into that. :)

    If planting in the sawdust/sand medium, is rotation still necessary?

    David, I had a quick question off of topic. I live in Rexburg by the way. Anyway, are you still having success with Google Sniper program? I have recently started it which is why I am asking.

    Another great vid, thanks!

    On the PVC stakes you have in the edge of the rows to anchor the hoops, how long are they? Wondering how deep they need to be into the ground.

    Wondering if you ever get over towards the east coast on your speaking engagements?

    I have a question. Have you seen any difference this year in plant health or production using your backyard soil compared to the sawdust/sand mix? Any preference?

    Thank You for the video. When is your next speaking event? in Utah. I would like to attend. ps I can't put down the mittleider library. so helpful.

    Some great information, I like the idea of growing them in the grow box first and then transplanting. I probably would of been one of those that just boshed the seeds into the field and hoping for the best.

  • Frederick Nolan 1 year ago

    I figured it was the beginning of the planting. I do like the 4th results too. The only knee-high corn was the last section you planted. Look like corn for every saturday afterwards until first snows of October. In FLA we have start outdoor prep in October and plant before turkey day. Hurricanes tend to ober water the ground.

    I don't know if you are doing this purposely David, but when you don't use Dr. Mittleider's name in the title of your posts, I never have to see this guys 6 reasons why I don't use the Mittleider method in the video selection on the right. Every other post that has Dr. Midleider's name there he is in the top three or four…..spreading straight up lies about fertilizer use in the Mittleider method. Anyway thanks if you are because I'm tired of seeing his dishonest post.

  • Brian Milde 1 year ago

    Could you show me your fun creative side? Your gardening is awesome and people who have seen your results and don't use your methods are fools, but all we see is calculated, monotone LDS. I understand the focus needed for achievement but where is your release? Thanks

  • Mark Taylor 1 year ago

    What i like about the Mittleider method of planting and nutrient placement (not close to the plant) is that it forces the plant to extend roots further away from the stock, making an extremely healthy and strong plant from the root up. This is key in the formation of the stock and it's size. It allows for so much more ability to hold 
    fruit or vegetable on it's branches. Most importantly,  a big thick stock  with a root system that is spread out as wide or wider  than the above ground portion of the plant is able to draw much more water and nutrients which results in a tremendous  harvest.

    Very informative video. Thanks very much!

    I have grow sweet corn in the Southern Utah clay soil before but only got 3-4 foot plants.  Planted same variety this year using the Mittleider gardening technique with my corn ten feet tall this season.  I am sold of this type of gardening.  My tomatoes are trellised to two four foot posts but the row is so heavy with tomatoes that they have bent these 4 inch posts inward perhaps 6 inches.  Amazing!

  • Beeper Man 1 year ago

    Thanks. I'm getting lots of ideas. Could you tell me how long you can store the fertilizers? Will they degrade at some point. My concern is for long term storage in case they may become unavailable to buy for an extended time.

  • Lazy Peon 1 year ago

    Planting 10% more seeds than you need so you can weed out the unproductive seedlings is so obvious, and yet something I had never thought of. I will definitely be doing that this coming season. Thanks for putting your amazing teaching skills out there where we can all learn from them!
