(T) Transplants are seedlings that have been moved to a transplant bed. The seedling once moved spends atleast one year in a transplant bed. A transplant bed provides the young seedling more care than it would recieve in a field and more room than it would have in a seedbed. The result is that a transplanted seedling will have a more fully developed root system than that of the untransplated seedling.

(S) Seedlings are plants once seeded are not moved until transplanted
