On the surface this question is gonna seem stupid, but I think it has just caused to be asked – Do you need to add seeds to potting soil in order for something to grow?
A few weeks back I wrote about mysterious sprouts growing my containers. I thought I had solved the mystery and that they were old seeds that never sprouted.
Since that time I’ve planted four new containers. They were started using brand new bags of potting soil and the same sprouts are emerging.
When I planted the seeds in the containers, I definitely did not spill the seeds into the containers nor reuse potting soil.
I’m using Whole Foods store made potting soil. Not sure if they have seeds already in there. I think I’m gonna make a new container, not put any seeds in it, water it and see what happens.
Has this happened to anyone else? Does potting soil always sprout like this?
