It works for me Al except I use 4" to 6" pots and line out in August. A rich potting sol with sand and compost. I have 75% first year bloom this way. Of course I don't have hundreds of seedlings to deal with.

  Subject: [iris-talk] CULT: Transferring seeds

  This month in a bed I discovered 4 seedlings from 2000.  

  I have sprouted seeds in  8" pots. I want to transfer the sprouts to 
  six pack containers, before lining them out. I want the sprouts to 
  develop a good system before I put them in the cold ground. Most of 
  the time I have time to piddle around.

  Is this a good approach, a bad approach or just wasting time?
