The success of any seedling can be marred by transplanting. The roots of transplants raised in a large seedling trays, peat pots, rough sided pots, or plastic molded seeding cells twine together so when the plants are separated may of these roots are damaged, reducing water intake and halting the head start gained indoors.
However, the roots in soil blocks grow to the edge of the block and turn back inwards, avoiding the surface and concentrating the root mass in the center. Hence, there is no ‘shock’ when the plant is set out, whether from soil block to soil block or soil block to garden, the roots can adapt to their new environment more readily.
