One of the most frustrating things about starting seeds is waiting for them to emerge from the soil. Pre sprouting seeds germinates seeds before planting. This saves time, eliminates thinning, and conserves space.
Growing your own seedlings from seed offers you more flexibly and control over your garden. You can choose your favorite varieties, grow the number of plants you need, and work within the planting dates that suit your growing area. Here are ten steps for starting seeds indoors.
Instead of scattering seeds then thinning later, creating seed mats allows you to space out the seeds according to the suggested spacing on the back of the seed package or Square Foot Garden spacing recommendations. Seed mats or seed tapes are helpful for planting tiny seeds, such as lettuce and carrots that are hard to sow one at a time. Also a great project for a rainy day when you can’t get out to the garden.
