Transplanting Vegetable Seedlings

I planted tiny vegetable plants from mini pots in my garden last week. They include tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and lettuce. Unfortunately, they are planted way too close together in a small garden. I'd like to transplant them into an enlarged garden.


But I don't know if it is better to do it now, or wait until the plants mature a bit more before disturbing them again. These plants were started at a garden center business by children (i.e. my daughter) as a healthy classroom project via a wellness grant. Thanks for any info.

I think if you just planted them last week it should be ok to move them now. I believe it will be better than waiting.

I would transplant them now as long as it is not too hot. Can you provide some kind of sun protection if it is so they won't wither and die until the roots get established?

Replant as soon as possible. Plant tomato and cabbage up to the bottom leaves but most others like lettuce and pumpkin have to be planted at the same level or stems will rot.
