how do u prep and sow your containers?
I thought it would be good to see the differences on how some of us preps and sows their containers. Here's how I do it----
-I split my seeds I want to plant between ones I can plant in the cold and ones I can plant when temps get warmer(spring).
-Then I make a list of those I want to plant in the cold. Numbering 1 thru ......
-I usually do about 6 at a time.
-While watching TV, I put masking tape on each container marked with two seperate numbers and name of seed. (e.g.---50, 50, salvia Yvonnes )
-Put containers in a tub that holds all six .
-at the sink, plug sink drain partially,to try to keep dirt from going down the drain.
-turn on water to slowly soak the container completely thru and thru.
-put back in tub and so on.
-have seeds ready before arriving at sink, and sow seeds in container.
-cover seeds if they need covered with dirt. (I use vermiculite).
-spritz top of container with water sprayer(mist).
-put one piece of tape to close lid
-outside you go
