Growing Plants From Seeds

I wanted to document how we grow our plants from seeds. We use mostly organic heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Seed Company. http://www.rareseeds.com

The seed trays usually have to be cleaned each year to get rid of the small spiders from within. After a few days the seeds germinate and then the grow lights are working to keep the seedlings from getting spindly or leggy.

The potting soil mix used is from Fox Farm comes with a Ocean Forest additives.

Growing from seed is economically cheaper than buying pre-potted plants. After about a month we harden them off and move them into the garden. We use old mini blinds for identification tags in our seed trays.
