Q.are my seeds ok

Zone 8 | hootie2 added on June 5, 2012 | Answered

I planted some basil, oregano, and sage. They all said to water them with a squirt bottle. I didn’t have one, so I used a scrubby bubbles bottle. I rinsed it out really well, but I could still smell some stuff. Do you think they’ll still sprout?

As long as the bottle was rinsed out good, there should not be any problems associated with the smell. Keep the soil evenly moist and then give the herbs some additional light once they have sprouted.
