1. Feel free to start growing seeds indoors by a window whenever you want. Even if it is too cold outside to transplant them, there can be satisfaction simply in growing seedlings.
2. Do NOT plant anything OUTSIDE during frost periods Oct.30-April 15 apx.
3. Small seeds – plant close to surface of soil / large seeds plant 1/2″ – 2″ / 3″+ for bulbs. Loose organic soil is always better.
4. Too much water can wash the seeds out of place (especially small seeds close to the surface)
Sad thing is most growers end up killing more plants than they grow, since we weed all the time, and many die; ironic but the harsh reality. i think the thing that makes a grower is someone that keeps planting and letting and helping plants grow despite losses.
