Gardening Basics: Seed Starting
Jennifer here! Are you up for the adventure of starting your own seeds? Check out what is growing in my garden!
Planting seeds is not always as easy as just placing them in the soil. My cardinal vine seeds needed to soak in water overnight, while my hardy hibiscus needed me to nick their seed coats. The funniest were my blue false indigo seeds, who wanted a sandpaper massage before they were planted! Cold-reliant seeds like milkweed and its relatives need to live in your refrigerator for a month on a damp paper towel before growing, or you could try planting them in the fall. It is helpful to read about your seeds' needs before planting. I hope that you find starting your own seeds to be as rewarding of an experience as I do!
