I love to garden and in the past have tried to start my own plants from seed. Usually they end up dying before I get them planted or right after they are in the ground. Another problem I run into is that my plants are gangly and leggy. I wanted to try my hand at starting some heirloom seeds this year, but was a little apprehensive due to my past lack of success! Enter, "Seed Starting" by Gary Emmett....
This was a very informative, easy to read book. I found it very useful to know what I need to do to make my seed starting more successful. Some of the points I found the most useful to me were:
- when to start seeds inside (I usually start them all at the same time)
- which seeds to just start outside and when (I thought you had to wait until after the last frost)
- what kind of "soil" to use and not use (I've tried using garden soil before)
- how to transplant the plants to larger containers (I usually just leave them in the original pot)
"Seed Starting" is available on Amazon as a Kindle ebook (I used the Kindle for PC app) for $2.99.
I was provided a free copy of this book for my honest review. I did not receive any other compensation for this review.
