Transplanting seedlings to Prevent Root Bound Plants

In this next video Mel shows how to transplant the pepper seedlings to larger pots to prevent them from getting root bound. This is done so that their growth is not stunted. The peppers now have more room to grow as they wait for the last frost date to pass and the can go out into the garden. The method of transplanting is the same for most other vegetables, that are not to sensitive to transplant shock.
