3 Tips to Growing Indoor Starts from Seeds

Are you interested in growing your own starts from seeds to plant later in your garden? There are a few things that you need to know before planting your seed. Having sustainability for your family can be a cyclical thing. Growing your plants, gathering the seeds, and starting over to create a new start to plant in your garden is a little miracle of it’s own. We want to share a few tips with you to taking those seeds and creating starts.

1. To get started with growing seeds and starts indoors you want to first make sure you have a moth-free zone to grow in. Some times of moths will lay their eggs in the soil and create a worm that will eat the roots of your newly sprouting seeds.

2. To grow in pots indoors you will want to make sure you use an odor-free soil mix. The pots that you purchase for growing indoors will need to have a water catchment.

3. Using peat moss or coconut core is an excellent way to grow indoors. You add water and they swell up so you can put your seed right inside. These are non inoculated, which means there is no bacteria or fungus inside of them. It can hold moisture over an extended period of time which will reduce any molding on your roots.

Gathering the right tools to grow your own starts is very important to your success. If you are growing from a seed packet, be sure to find out if it is something that can be grown indoors. There may be alternate instructions on how to care and nourish you plants to transport them into your outdoor garden.
