Planting From Seeds


Sypur5 added on March 14, 2016 | Answered

I am planting seeds for the first time and I don't have the small square seeding pots. I'm using medium round pots. My question is, how many seeds do you put in one hole/pot? Thank you in advance

The number of seeds depends on the variety that you are growing and the type and size of seeds.

For seeds such as tomatoes you can space several seeds in a pot. As these grow you can then separate the seedlings into individual pots.

For something like Nasturtium seeds, you might place 3-5 seeds per pot.

Read the back of your seed packets. They are full of information!
Here are some links with more information.
