How To Grow Your Lavender GardenFebruary 16, 2018
Are you interested in growing seeds but are too worried that you might not do it right and eventually fail? Here is a space-saving, and almost fail-proof way on how to do indoor seeding. Let this step by step guide help you get it done right.
What do you need to start your own seeding indoor?
- Paper Towel – make sure to pick the slightly thick kind to keep it from shredding easily.
- Pots or Plastic Containers – if you think this container is too big, you can choose resealable plastic bags
- Large Brown Envelops – select the one that’s thick enough to keep the light out.
- Permanent Marker – for plant marking
- Labels – to help you keep knowledge of what kind of seed each bag has.
How do you do it?
- Step 1: Sprinkle the paper towel with water until it is thoroughly damp. Then lay it on a flat surface.
- Step 2: Spread the seeds on the towel in rows. Make sure to give each one enough room. Larger seeds may need a bigger space in between. If you lay out more than one kind of seed on the towel, make sure that you put the same germination together in a given area.
- Step 3: Fold the unseeded part of the towel and make sure to cut each one in half. Make sure that all seeds are covered.
- Step 4: Label the seed on each towel. Repeat the labeling on the plastic containers. Make sure to include the date when the germination is expected. Whether it is the paper towel labeling method or the plastic container labeling method, it is your choice. Whatever works for you is fine.
- Step 5: When putting the covered seeds inside the plastic bags, make sure that the bags are moisturized. But do not leave any water in. Close the bag and gently let all the air out. Then, put the bags in the brown envelope and store it at room temperature of about 70 degrees.
You’ll be surprised at how fast these plants germinate. When you see that the seeds have grown, make sure to transport them to individual containers where they can grow further in the soil.
Planting seeds can be fun. If you have yet to try it, you should. It brings about a certain kind of joy that’s simply unexplainable.
