He suggests ensuring that the plant has been "hardened off" when buying transplants from the nursery. Next John presents leaf lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and Swiss chard as some additional vegetables. He does remind the watcher to consult the plant labels for all the spacing information they may need. Moving on to flowers, John suggests stocks, snap dragons, violas, and pansies for cold season flowers with good color. The video ends with the following transplanting tips from John: be sure to pop plants out of container and tease the roots, periodically use a light liquid fertilizer, and keep them well watered.
