Q.Greenhouse Seedlings Dying Inch Above Potting Soil

Anonymous added on March 12, 2011 | Answered

I am having a problem with my seedlings (in my greenhouse) dying. They are all starting to shrivel at the stem about an inch above the newly repotted soil. I transferred them into larger pots until I can transplant them into the garden. They were very healthy seedlings, but about one week after transplanting into the new pots, the stems just shrivelled up.
