How to start Herbs from seed.

Starting Herbs from seeds

Hi Gardening Friends

Well here is some information if you want to start Herbs from seed.

First take your seed catalog and pick out the herb seed that you want to grow.

If you want to grow Rosemary,Oregano, or Thyme this is what you can do.

First make sure your seed flats are sterilized and clean. After that let them

dry and them take your germinating mix and fill the flat half full of soil.

Then you take the flat and soak the soil and take the flat and let it sit

and drain. Now you take your seed packet and start to sow your seeds.

After you broadcasted your seed then you take and mist the flat. Because

you don't cover seeds with soil when you are starting seeds of Rosemary,

Oregano, or Thyme. You can do all kind of Herbs in starting them from seeds.

like this. Read the back of your packet to see if you leave the seeds uncovered or not. You may cover some of your herb seeds with soil.

If you have a greenhouse you can put them on the bench and keep them misted until they germinate in about 10 to 14 days.

If you don't have a greenhouse you can start your herb seeds in the house under grow lights and a propagating mat.

Ihope you try to start some herbs from seed. Would you let me know how you did?

Good Luck
