Starting Your First Home Garden From Seed
My sister in law sent me a photo of her shopping trip the other day. The only problem is – she has no idea what she is doing! In this video I share the image she sent me along with some growing tips from my personal experience growing from seed.
This video is on my Bren Haas YouTube Channel.

Be sure to read the seed packages. Most seed companies print the hardiness zone information on the back of the package. It will also be a good thing to have a calendar handy so you can count back the weeks to when it is recommended to start your seeds indoors. Questions? Ask me on this post!
Highlights Tips and Tricks From Video
I would like to share with you a few of the tips and tricks I don’t want you to miss about the topic of starting a home garden from seed. Below are a few I hope you will keep in mind.
Over the years I have become a huge hardiness zone and weather junkie! It is important to know what zone you garden in so you know the last and first frost date in your area. I share more about that on my site.
Saving The Seeds
I go crazy buying seeds because they are cheap and there are so many beautiful things to grow. If you store the seeds in cool dry location they will last for many years. This year my seeds from 2012 grew to my surprise. You can see that in my latest vlog.
The trays you start the seeds in are not their permit home. Below are a few images of my tray set up. I later transplant the babies plants such as peppers and tomatoes to bigger containers. I shared more about different containers and trays that can be used in home gardening.
Each year has not been what most would call a success. There are years in the garden you may not get a harvest or you may get more than expected. ALWAYS remember that it is never a waste of time to start seeds.
TAKE LOTS OF PHOTOS!
I want to see your garden grow so be sure to share with me by commenting on this post. You can never take too many photos of your garden experience. The images can be uploaded to the cloud or saved on your favorite photo site for future reference.
