Gardening is a fun thing to do that gives you beautiful plants to look at and food to eat! I've had some questions about how I start seeds for my garden, so I thought it would be fun to show you the process LIVE!
This my last batch of seed starting for this gardening season. In this video I'm starting borage and marigolds. These are both flowers that will add beautiful color to my garden and help me grow more produce by attracting beneficial insects (like pollinators) and deter insects that could damage my plants. I also had plans to start globe amaranth, but, as you'll see in the video, I had to postpone that planting.
In this video, I walk you through the basics of starting seeds indoors, including what kind of soil I use, how to prepare your soil for starting seeds, containers for seed starting, what to do to help your seeds germinate, getting your plant starts enough light, my grow rack and grow light set up, the benefits of starting plants from seed (and why I like to do it), and much more!
