Easy Indoor Seed Starting Tips

Early spring is the perfect time to get a head start on summer gardening by starting seeds indoors.  For the past six years I’ve been starting peppers, tomatoes and egg plant successfully indoors and transplanting the starter plant in the garden after May 20th.

In this video I share a few tips on planting indoors that I hope will help you be successful in your growing seed experience.  I started my tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in this post featured video.  I can’t wait to share with you some of the new varieties from Sustainable Seed Company that I’m growing this year.

Important Tips For Starting Seeds Indoors:

Use recycled containers that have been cleaned from your garden center visits the year before.

Try being creative and use toilet paper rolls and / or paper towel rolls as containers for planting.

 

Meat trays or salad trays that have been recycled and cleaned can make great containers to hold the potted seeds.

Always use healthy seed starting soil.  Today I’m using Pro-Mix Seed Starting Mix.

Be sure to clearly mark your trays so you know what you have growing in each.  Tomato plants all look the same until they start producing fruit!

Keep all starter plants out of direct sunlight until they are least 4 inches tall in containers.

Don’t over water – the containers need to be lightly watered so that the soil isn’t completely dry.

I hope these tips help you with your growing seed experience .  Be sure to leave me a comment if you have any questions because I’m happy to help you grow!

  1. Tomato plants will not develop fruit once the night time temps start hitting 90+.
    Tie these canes at the top, and place a blanket over it.
    Temperature: The optimal temperature range one needs to observe for any
    plant falls in 70F-75F.

  2. Bren, this is a very helpful video! Thanks so much for visiting my site so that I could find you. I will definitely be back. I wish that we were neighbors, so that we could go grab a coffee and talk gardening! -Stephanie

  3. I’m so eager to start my seeds for this year but am late on ordering my seeds (waiting for family members to get their lists ready). Thanks for the tips.

    Thanks, also, for visiting my blog and liking my post about how to make a homemade bird house from a flower pot. I look forward to searching through your site some more. There’s a lot of information here! 🙂

  4. Great tips, but does anyone check their writing for errors anymore? “they soil” Really? I’m a teenager, and I wouldn’t ever post anything without proof reading it. Spelling errors are embarrassing and make you look lazy.
