Tip of the Week

Growing your veggie garden from seed is a great way to grow a more diverse selection of plants. Now that your seedlings have germinated, what should you do now? Make sure that they stay warm enough, especially if they are tender summer annuals like peppers or eggplant. Another thing to consider is light–make sure they have a good light source either natural light or artificial grow lights. If you have planted multiple seeds in one cell, you can thin out the weaker seedlings using snips. Once the seedlings have their first set of true leaves, you can start fertilizing with a weak solution (1/4 strength) of a liquid fertilizer, like our Liquid Fish or Liquid Grow, combined with a kelp solution (also diluted 1/4-1/2 strength). Once the seedlings start to outgrow their original container, move up into a larger pot.
