Thinning Plants

Anonymous added on February 17, 2014 | Answered

I read a lot of articles about planting from seeds. They all say to thin the plants to a certain distance. I want to know exactly how to thin, how do I know which plant to pull? And should I plant the ones I pulled to another space? Or just throw away? On some varieties, can I just let them compete and outgrow the weak ones, instead of accidentally pull the good ones?
