This is my fourth year of propagating annuals & veggies & it has taken me this long to learn the basics........ I've been a life long gardener, but I never dabbled in propagation until I retired & had the time to pursue it...... I'm a slow study by nature & without the help of kind folks like Dave & many others, I'd still be at square one........

That said, I'm curious to know how long other GW members have been propagating & how long did it take for you to become somewhat proficient?

Wow! Talk about a wealth of knowledge! I have no formal training, only hands on experience coupled with GW wisdom.......

Still don't know how my ancestors gardened without the help of the internet or never having had a soil test! LOL

I've been growing from seed since the mid-80's. I've started seeds under lights, in flats or cups outside, via direct sowing, and my favorite method which is winter-sowing.

One of the easiest ways is scattering seed here and there in the garden, or letting plants self-sow. Nature does the work for you that way!

After almost 30 years, I'm starting to feel a little proficient...
