If you are going to start you seed from seed here is a good step by step guide from, Botanical Interests, this is also a good site to order seeds from. There are many good seed distributors out there. I just have a friend that works there and I like to support. Also if you will start paying close attention to my posts, I will be posting a "free give away" in the very near future. So be on the watch out!
I just wanted to give a few DIY tips and ways to recycle things around the house to start your seeds in. You can use just about anything to start your seeds in. Plastic pots or containers are preferable to clay pots when starting seeds, as they retain moisture more consistently. Wide, shallow containers prevent both overcrowding of seedlings and excessive moisture around fragile, young roots. Plants that resent root disturbance when transplanted are best sown into small, individual containers like cell packs or plug trays. Recycled plastic containers, like empty yogurt or margarine tubs and egg cartons work well, too, provided you've poked holes in the bottom for drainage.No matter what type of container you use, it must be clean and free of pathogens. To sanitize a container, soak it in a 10 percent bleach solution for 15 minutes and let it air dry.
Here is an interesting container that we all see at the store that make a neat little greenhouse altogether. These are the containers that most veggies come in, in the store or maybe you get a salad in them at a drive thru, maybe even your bought your Wal-Mart fried chicken in one! These already have holes for water drainage and for air ventilation. Only fill it up half way with dirt so your plants have a little room to grow before you have to transplant the.
You can even use your news papers to make little stater pots, I even saw a lady on another blog using the pagers of her old phone book! Awesome idea, I thought!
These are just a few ideas on how to recycle containers for seed starting. I would like to see anymore ideas! And read more for a great opportunity with other bloggers!
