I wonder how much chemical residues are in these seedlings at harvest time especially with fast-growing plants like basil or lettuce? How is seedling production regulated? And how do these seedlings perform in the garden? My guess is that they are grown very fast. What fertilizers does the industry use?
Just wondering, I myself never buy any seedlings it's just interesting to know. Buying seedlings is imo a waste of money.
