    Can I just use soil when I move my seedlings from the small peat pots to 4" pots? I used a potting mix first, but now they need more space.

    Yes, if it is not heavy clay. You could stick the peat pot and all right in to the 4" pots. Putting them deeper in the soil will make them grow a larger root system. Might help to cut the peat pots down the sides.
