Seed starting.

Who thought that it could be so intimidating…

..but there are lots of questions and things to take into consideration when starting your seeds.

    Though it should be added to that last photo, remove the plastic dome once the seedlings emerge or you’ll lose many of your seedlings to damping off!

Oh wait.. “simple rules for starting your seeds”. If only it were really that simple.
