How to sow your seeds
Now that you’ve got your kit, it’s time to get your hands dirty and sow your seeds!
Here are the steps to get your plants going:
Step 1: Check your timing
The goal with seed starting is to have your seedlings ready to go outside when the weather is favourable.
You can look at the seed packet, which should tell you when to start seeds inside, otherwise, you might need to do a little research on what it is you’re trying to grow.
Some types of vegetables, such as beans and squash, are best started outdoors.
There is little benefit to growing them indoors because they germinate and grow quickly.
Some flowers, such as poppies, are best planted outdoors, too. These seeds are usually marked ‘direct sow’.
