Rub a dub dub, seedlings in a tub
We finally did it! Got away on a camping trip that is. We spent 3 beautiful nights away and our garden survived. Granted the weather has become milder so the established plants in the beds coped fine but the seedlings still would have perished if left outdoors. So thanks to a great tip given by Soewn Earth on my post about NOT going camping, they did more than just survive, some even sprouted. The great advice was to put them in the tub.
I did add a bit of water to the tub to keep their bottoms wet but due to the slope in the bath only those at the deep end were submerged. Having those at the shallow end submerged would have meant drowning those up the deep end. Regardless when we returned home those at either end seemed just as moist. So whether the water was necessary or not I do not know. What’s your thoughts?
The shower cubical and laundry sink is probably another good place to put them.
