The first thing on my to-do list for spring is starting seeds! I head to O’Toole’s to pick up some essentials like Espoma Organic Seed Starting Soil, Plant Best compostable pots and trays, and seeds! If you’d like an extra head start on the season, adding a seedling heat mat from Jump Start and a Agrobrite Grow Light can also be useful tools.
One of the easiest things about starting seeds is that all of the instructions you need are listed on the back of the seed packets you pick up. I like to prep my trays and pots by filling them most of the way up with the seed starting soil, and then add indentations based on the seed packets’ instructions. After sprinkling in seeds, gently top off the soil and water thoroughly. I like to use a greenhouse to keep up humidity levels, but many seed-starting trays come with plastic humidity covers that work just as well! Keep them well-watered and in sunshine and you’ll start to see seedlings soon!
