If you like to get a head start on the growing season by starting some of your seedlings in doors, there are few things you can do that will make your efforts more successful.
I found that I get the best rate of germination from seed by keeping the soil slightly yet consistently warm this can make a big difference. That’s why you use one of this electric warming mats designed to keep the seed warm and snug in the soil.
To encourage that seed to sprout you must provide the ideal environment. You see if you planted this seed directly into the cold soil, they would just rot. But by keeping the soil 70 to 75 degrees with one of these warming mats. Once the seed germinate, they will go into sturdy plants provided I keep them in a well-lit place before I transplant them into the garden.
There are couples of other tips you may find helpful. When it comes to soil never, use ordinary garden soil. These commercial blends are sterile, light and we’ll hold moisture making them well worth the investment.
Also when selecting containers for your seedling you might try a recycling some of the plastic trays or little cell packs. But if you do it, it’s important to soak for them for a few hours in bleach and water about a fourth of a cup of bleach with a gallon of water will do and this will peal any fungus.
This year if you decide to grow some of your own seedling and I think you’ll find it it’s a great way to kick off the garden season. From the garden, I’m Allen Smith.
