Fellow Gardeners,

 

Some tips that picked up during my home gardening experiments..

 

- Sow the seeds at twice the depth of the seed. This will ensure maximum and speedy germination.

- Don't over water or soak the soil. Instead use a hand sprayer and gently spray the container or ground (depending on where you sow the seeds).

- Keep in a bright location away from direct sun light (I experimented by keeping under the sun too and fortunately same results).

- Keep spraying 3-4 times a day depending upon the frequency of dry out. The key is to keep the top 1/2 inch or so moist (not wet).

- Use plastic or thermocol trays for easy transplanting later. Thermocol works best for it's durability.

 

I tried this last week with radish, Capsium, Sweet Basil, Beetroot etc with good success.

 

Happy gardening.

Biju
