Life is too short to prick out individual tiny seedlings like lobelia.  In any case I want a decent size clump I can plant out quickly. 

This half tray has up to 1500 seedlings in it, in theory. No-one has that many modules handy. The way to handle these is to prick out in clumps.

Dive in and grab a clump of 20 or so, a good pinch worth. 

They can be pricked out into modules as a clump like this. 

Frankly it is still a little time consuming, but a lot less than individually.

Short and sweet today.

I’ll be back soon with more propagating news and tips.
