Re: STARTING SEEDS THE EASY WAY


HEY...

I MUST OF DELETED THE ORIGINAL POST INSTEAD OF SAVING IT....SOMEONE ASKED
ABOUT STARTING SEEDS, BUT SHE HAD NO ROOM FOR LIGHTS.....

THE SIMPLEST METHOD WOULD BE TO SOW THEM OUTDOORS, IN A SPECIALY PREPARED
BED.....ACTUALLY THE EASIEST is to let them fall to the ground......but you
can lose your cultivar, when it is overrun by hyperactive seedlings......

anyway, prepare a special bed.....both people i know who do it this way insist
on something like chicken wire over the top to keep the squirrels out of the
bed......

good soil, some labels......mark out some rows.....sow the seeds in the fall,
and they should sprout in the spring....

i do not do it this way, so i can give no more specific directions......the
hosta seeds sprout quite freely, and they dont seem to mind natures way....it
will take more time than under 24 hours light......but at least you are giving
it a go....

i would think that this is a simple way for the novice to give it a try,
without having to take up valuable space with lights......
