Why start from seed?
When you buy seedlings from your local nursery or grocery store the variety is limited. You will never find Glass Gem corn or Russian Chocolate tomatoes at the nursery. Growing your own seedlings from seed gives you almost limitless possibilities. Don’t have a lot of space? Grow Mascotte beans, a variety that only gets to be 18″ high and is made especially for growing in containers.
Also, a lot of seeds can be planted out before the garden centres even open for business in the spring. Beets, carrots, onions, lettuce, swiss chard, kale and a ton of other things can be put out in the garden a full month before tomatoes and other heat loving vegetables can.
What you’ll learn.
- How to plant seeds. Which method for which seed.
- What soil to use.
- The benefits and drawbacks of different kinds of pots/containers.
- When and how to fertilize.
- How to separate and thin your seedlings.
- Do you need grow lights and if so which kind?
- How to harden off your plants.
- Where to get your supplies.
- And much, MUCH more.
