This is my method for starting seeds indoors.
---> How to start seeds indoors
Good timely info.
I usually get seedlings from a local grower and go from there but this is good to have, very detailed.
It is odd. My mom said her mom used to start their tomatoes in an old metal pan that she sat in the kitchen near the stove. I have all the set up I need with lights and pads and such, I I have horrible luck getting tomatoes started indoors.
I don't even attempt tomatoes. I just wait for the garden center to start selling their seedlings.
Hope they have ghost peppers again. I really enjoyed those last year.
I've never started my own from seeds before. I usually buy baby plants. This year, I did get some seeds as a gift though. I should probably start them inside since I live in New England and we will probably get frost up until May? Any advice?
There are several ways to do it...my Papa taught me to soak okra seeds overnight before planting..For weed I would put the seeds in wet paper towels until they split open, then put in starter pots..Someone is knocking on the door, must be the DEA..
I have lavender, sage and thyme.
I put in rosemary so far..
From seed? That must take awhile. I just bought one plant and then propagated it. Take off a sprig, strip the lower leaves, dip in rooting hormone and stick in the dirt. Keep it moist a month or so and in the shade and you have a well-rooted rosemary plant to set out. I have about 10 plants I started from 1 myself, and have rooted at least 10 more that I gave away way. I don't even like rosemary that much but it is supposed to deter some critters. I mostly just like propagating plants. It makes me feel like I am pulling a fast one on big agribusiness.
One is more than enough for us, plus I need the room to plant more when it gets warmer..
