nursery operations

Descriptor: Development
Description: Seed germination takes from 2 to 4 weeks and, in the case of multiple seed sowing, many containers have more than one germinant per cell. Most growers feel that oversowing is justified because it is considered more economical to waste a little seed rather than tolerate empty containers which waste valuable growing space. Resowing empty containers is an option, but later-sown seedlings are often overtopped by their neighbors and remain stunted.
