Starting a Garden

Hi All,

This year I said I will try to start a little herb and flower garden by Jiffy.  I was walking around Wal Mart and came across this indoor seeding starter kit.  I thought I would try it out and see what happen, and it was only $5.00 for this kit and $1 for the seeds.

The directions are easy to follow.  Gradually add warm water per pellet, so it can expand.  Add more water as needed.  When pellets are fully expanded, pour off any excess water.

Gently pull back netting on top of pellets.  Fluff and level surface. Sow 2 – 3 seeds per pellet. I decided to only plant the basil and lavender.  Some side say I should plant the peppers directly in the ground.

Place dome on tray and keep in a warm location away from direct sunlight.

Place dome on tray and keep it in a warm location directly away from sunlight.   When first seeds sprout, prop dome open.  When all seeds have sprouted, remove dome and place in a sunny location.  After first leaves appear, but back all except strongest seedling in each pellet.  It seems easy right?  Well, we’ll see what happens in a month.
