Seed Starting: The Low Down

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Seed starting has me so excited I just may wet my plants.

Seriously, though--it's time to start thinking about seed starting if you're going to plant some of your own veggies this year. This seems counter-intuitive because, of course, we'd love it if you bought ALL your plants through us! But honestly, a love of gardening comes with a love of helping things grow, and there's nothing more satisfying than seeing your hard work produce something in the garden. So I'm going to start a series of blog posts to provide some working tips and tricks for getting the most out of seed starting. We'll cover:

  • Seed Packets: What you need to know

  • Timing: What to plant and when

  • The List: Your guide to what to start indoors (and what not to!)

  • The Source: Where to obtain your seeds

  • The Goods: Materials needed to start (and the ones you don't!)

  • Let There Be Light: A guide to indoor grow lights

  • Best Behavior: Tips & tricks to ensure success

  • A Rainy Day: Tips for saving seeds for next year

Along the way, we'll cover options for different needs and budgets, including small spaces and limited resources. Where there's a will, there's a way!

OK I think I've covered enough colloquialisms for today. I hope you find this mini-series on seed-saving helpful.

Next year we plan to introduce a series of workshops for home gardeners, and so if you have any questions please ask them. They could also help us frame our workshops later on!
