If planted too closely together their delicate little roots grow together
and are damaged when I try to separate them for transplanting.
I have found that when I have a pot of seedlings where the roots have grown
together that it is much easier separate them without damaging the roots if
I tip the contents of whole pot into a bucket of water and separate them
there. A lot of the separation can be achieved by just gently swirling the
seedlings around in the water without directly touching the roots at all.
