Growing your plants from seeds can be moderately difficult, but as any practiced gardener will tell you, “the satisfaction you receive from seeing something so tiny, grow into an actual plant, is a reward within itself.” Also, think of all the different variety of plants you can grow and of course, the money you will save by growing your own plants.

Depending on your growing area and seed type, there are some seeds that have to be started indoors. Please make sure you read your seed packets for accurate instructions. To sow your seeds, a sterile seed starting mix is recommended, however you can use a potting mix, which typically consists of perlite, vermiculite and peat moss. You will also need the following:

  • plastic cell trays or *pots and flats without drain holes
  • clear plastic domes or plastic bags
  • plant labels
  • a permanent marker
  • a watering container

  1. I started some seeds about a week ago, maybe? So far, the weather has been fair enough that we have been able to leave the trays outside, but we have a place to put them indoors if a below-freezing night comes before it’s time to transplant them. It IS exciting to watch those tiny seeds become tiny plants that will eventually become food on my plate!
