All you need is a collection of toilet paper rolls, scissors, potting soil, seed and a waterproof container. Fill them with a light potting soil, pack it down with your thumbs. Add your choice of seed, planting to their proper depth. Place the planted pots in a watertight container and give them a good watering.
Simply so, what size pots to start seeds in?
Pots of 3 to 4 inches are good sizes to pot up to, allowing plenty of room for root growth. If more than one seedling is growing in the same pot, either separate the seedlings into individual pots or cut off all but the strongest seedling.
Accordingly, what is the best medium for starting seeds?
The best seed starting mix (which you’ll learn to DIY below) is made of perlite, vermiculite, and sphagnum peat moss.
Can you use egg boxes as seed trays?
Cardboard Tubes and Egg Cartons are perfect for seedlings.
Seedlings otherwise can become root-bound if not given adequate space for the roots. Typically, after sowing the seeds, the cell trays are used for around 3-4 weeks before transplanting occurs – whether it be to an outdoor plot or into a larger container.
