    Wondering what this ‘hardening off’ thing is really all about?

    In this gardening video tutorial I’ll show you a few ways to harden off
    your seedling. I’ll also cover what plant sun burn and frost damage really
    looks like.

    Great information Scarlett! I like how you use so many examples from your
    personal garden. :)

    Scarlett! This was one of your best episodes yet! I seriously loved it :D

    Good advice. Hardening off is an area that I tend not to excel in because
    I forget to bring trays back in at night or forget to put them out the next
    day etc, etc. Maybe I’ll get it right now.
    Best Wishes, Brendan.

    I started my seeds outside. No frost or freezing but kinda chilly. I
    thought the hardening process would be less. I have to say my plants don’t
    look very good at all. I am keeping hope alive though. Janice

    That is your story and you are sticking to it! LOL Great tips. I thought
    that I did in some peppers in the greenhouse the other day. Even with the
    heater, the temperature droopped down to 5 C. There leaves were dropped in
    the morning but they came after the sun warmed things up a bit. No wimpy
    plants here!

    Great start to the garden Scarlet. And nice save on the basil. I’m sure it
    will grow back really nicely.

    Great help on hardening off seedlings. The hard part is hauling them all
    out then set the timer, buzzzzz, bring them all back in, errrrr.. Ahhh,
    it’s so nice when you don’t have to do that anymore. Then time to plant
    them all ;-)

    Excellent reminder, and good to know I’m not the only one who puts them out
    for too long, or in too much sun, and sadly kill off a few each year. How
    about when you do it for 2 days, miss a couple days,and do it again for a
    couple days. My work days are 7 am to 7 pm, so I can’t really put them out
    consistently. Thanks for all your videos, such a good source of
    information, and in a cheery way, Love it;)

    great vid

  • J&J Acres says:

    Sound advice. So not fun loosing seedlings – and sometimes means you’ve run
    out of time to grow the plant at all, which really stinks.

  • shox rox ice says:

    I just lost a few seedlings while on vacation… bummed me out, but it was
    a great learning experience: hardening seedlings requires attention, not to
    be done while away.
