How to Start Seeds - Part 2
MARCH 27, 2016
Gardeners in our region often start their seeds indoors to get a head start on spring planting. There’s really nothing to seed starting, if you follow a few basic steps.
First, you’ll need a few supplies. Seeds (of course), seed starting mix, a seed starting tray or containers, a trowel, watering mister, plant labels and source of light.
There are at least two ways to start your seeds:
- Start seeds in ready-to-grow peat pellets.
- Start seeds in seed trays filled with seed-starting mix.
You can be successful with either method. Starting seeds in peat pellets means you can plant the expanded pot and transplant right into the garden. In seed trays, you may need to transplant the small plants into larger containers before moving them outside.
