After looking looking at the roots I made a alteratioinhttp://i65.servimg.com/u/f65/15/05/96/27/100_0752.jpg We'll see if this works. Forget any more pictures at this time. I have them to show a simple way to do this. Without exception all the seedlings are set back by cold weather. This is a method to overcome the problem. In these holes there is much better protection to the point of steam coming off the dirt plug on a frosty morning. this is a better condition than in my sun room. This is very time consuming but a way to extend the growing period from six months to as far as you want to take it. Could be a poor boy green house if a few cement blocks and a piece of plastic was added. Before you start any kind of program or just for fun it's much better to be able to look at the results first and then do the cold testing. It takes time to build the thickness of the canes to the degree necessary to be unaffected by the cold. The other point is the roots are not growing down to any worthwhile degree. I like to soak the trays some times for two days even, so the peat pots are pretty soggy, and it doesn't appear to hurt the seedlings. On tearing the pet pots off the seedlings over a wide variety, the roots are just bunched at the bottom and along the sides with little penetration of the pot and many of the pots do not have holes in the bottom. A lot of implications here. Cheers Neil
