Tricia shows you how to start seeds in early spring. She will introduce you to soil blockers, and various seed starting materials.

Seed blocker looks great. I am starting seeds in my basement under artificial light. My new 4 foot long LED lights are replacing my flourescent bulbs but they have light diffuser covers. Do I need to remove these covers? Thanks

Max, were these lights that you purchased from Peaceful Valley? If so I can talk with our vendor about it.

In your video you mentioned that you place 2 seeds in each cell (I assume in case one does not germinate). So when both germinate, do you recommend sacrificing one? Thanks!

Allison, if you only want one plant then, yes you should remove the smaller seedling (by cutting it). Or if you have room for two plants, then you divide them, when big enough, into another pot.

The metal ‘knife’ Tricia uses to pick up and plant the seeds into the trays, is that available for sale.  I could not find it on the website.

Carla, yes the tool is called a widger (GP040), and you can find it on our website. It is a great handy tool for removing seedlings from speedling trays or from small cells and also for planting seeds.
