Transplanting to a larger pot
This tomato grown from seed is destined for a children’s garden and won’t be put in the garden until the end of the month. It will outgrow its small pot and become root bound by then, so it was replanted into a larger pot. Roots showing out the holes in the bottom of the pot are a sign the plant is growing too large for the pot.
This is an update from Robin at the Washington County Master Gardener Association Learning Garden at Jenkins Estate. Master Gardeners for the 2023 Food Hero Grow This! Gardening challenge. Thousands of Oregonians have received their seeds from Food Hero, and OSU Master Gardener volunteers are growing along right beside you to share updates and growing tips.
You can visit the garden and see all of this work live! The Learning Garden is there to show different growing techniques, plants, and designs that work well in the local climate.
