HISTORY OF BEDDING PLANT PRACTICES WITH REFERENCE TO SEEDING AND TRANSPLANTING
The old practice of seeding was to seed into flats using 1000–1500 seed per flat. After germination, transplant 64 seedlings to the same size flat. After 3 to 5 weeks, transplant those to the various finished product sizes. The only automated process of this practice was the flat filling and dibbling (dibble board).
