Seed Care

  • Select a container, making sure that it is sanitized, will drain, and is deep enough for root growth and development.
  • Fill the container with moistened, sterile, seed-starting mix and firm the surface.
  • Check seed package for planting depth.
  • Make shallow indentations in the media and sow the seed evenly.
  • Lightly water the surface, and place the container in a warm area (not in direct sunlight).
  • As seeds germinate, move seedlings to a well-lit area, such as under fluorescent lights.
  • The cotyledons, or seed leaves will emerge first.
