How-To: Planting Seeds


Just like you've got to learn your ABC's before you write a bestseller, or even a discount bin title, you must learn the basics of planting seeds before you attempt to grow a full-fledged vegetable garden. So, to commence Good to Grow month, I'm going to start you off with the foundations of seed growth. Then, you'll be armed and ready to grow your very own hanging Solanum lycopersicums, and perhaps some Cucurbita pepos and Abelmoschus esculentus. So, for your first kindergarten (which, coincidentally means literally "children's garden") lesson in planting seeds, and to see a jazzy video,

.

  1. Spread your seeds into a seedling tray or container evenly. Mark each section with the plant names so you remember what's what (trust me, you'll forget otherwise).
  2. To learn the appropriate depth for planting your seeds, read the packet instructions.
  3. Make a small depression with your finger to the correct depth for each section.
  4. Plant one or two seeds into the depression of each section of the tray.
  5. Gently cover the seeds with soil.
  6. Water the seeds and keep the soil in each section of the tray moist.
  7. Place your seedling tray or containers in a warm, sunny place on a waterpoof base.
  8. Continue to keep the soil moist.
