RE: Transplanting seedlings


Never tried the saltpetre. How is it done? I might actually have some of
that lying around, we used it once trying to tan a sheepskin (note to the
list: should you be in this situation, just mail it to a tanning company.
Much easier :-)
I figured I would get better production if I planted the seedlings separate
instead of in "hills" like corn.

Two questions, Cyndi--

One, have you ever soaked pepper seeds in a salt petre solution before 
planting? It seems to improve germination.

Two, why not plant two or three seedlings together?
