Hi there,

I have a little problem and would please welcome help. I was wondering what I did wrong in this case… these seedlings are dwarf sugar grey peas and the other two are mammoth sugar pea pods. Did I plant the seeds too deep? I’ve attached a few photos. Can I save these plants? If I can, how do I safely take out the plant to transplant into a larger container? Or would it be better off for me to restart these seedlings as it’s only been a few days?

The radical (embryonic root) emerges form the seed before the hypocotyl (embryonic stem).

Carefully removing the seedlings and transplant them or start with new seeds. Either way is fine.

If you want to transplant your seedlings trey cutting away the plastic container rather than tugging the radicle through that hole. However, even if the radicle tip is damaged, the roots will branch and the seedling may likely recover.

You seem to have a lot of concern and trouble with transplanting. Instead, just your seeds in their final container. This will work fine for most annual vegetables. Plant extra seed so that you will have enough germination where you can thin out extra plants. Of course, transplanting is likely not the main reason forseedling failure. Any issues with light and soil moisture need to be addressed first and foremost.
