Planting seedlings is an important and well-respected way to start your garden. Planting seedlings will allow you to harvest the flowers, vegetables, fruit, and other produce that you enjoy most.
There is a large variety of species for your planting and no two plants may be exactly alike. Once you have started your seeds you will be able to enjoy a wide range of flowers and fruits, some varieties may even be available locally!
It is recommended that you start with new varieties of plants, no matter what the climate may be. By purchasing seedlings of those plants that are already known to flourish in your region you will begin to see the results sooner. Many times plants that are small and weak are hard to ship or handle which results in delays and shipping costs.
When planting seeds in the early stages of growth, it is imperative that you do so in a short time frame or your plants will not survive. You should consider all the risks associated with your planting method and decide if it is the best for your particular needs.
If you have a small amount of money available to purchase seedlings, make sure that you check out several companies to compare prices. If you are unsure about any of the options you will need to ask the owner. Every year a few of these plants will turn out to be very successful.
Many people plant seeds in winter, as soon as winter ends they place the seedlings in the garden for a quick spring planting. This usually results in either a large mess or little success as you begin to re-veg the seeds and have them ready for the next season.
Most gardeners have an indoor or greenhouse that they are able to control during the growing season. In an indoor garden space, you may find yourself with less growth time than you would outside. To ensure that your plants are given the optimal growing period you will want to transplant your garden’s seedlings into pots of equal size or larger at the beginning of the growing season.
If you are working in a greenhouse you can place container growing pots in the planter boxes. This is a great way to get your seeds planted while they are still small enough to handle without fear of damage from getting them wet.
Those who like to have their seedlings grow, use either large things like large racks or chutes, or planter boxes. These containers should be able to hold your planting equipment and not affect your growing process.
You can also consider growing and planting different varieties of various plants in the same container or planter box. You will soon discover that this method will provide you with a much wider variety of plants than if you were planting them individually.
Planting seedlings has become a very efficient and cost-effective method for new gardeners. Most gardening enthusiasts love to grow a wide range of crops, knowing which seeds to plant and when is important to the success of your crop.
