Planting last year’s seeds

Zone Bromborough | Anonymous added on February 6, 2020 | Answered

I saved quite a few seeds and pods from places I visited last year and wanted to pot them out in the propagator for this year. What is the best time to start and what's the best way to do this? It's my first attempt!

The best time to start seeds is 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. It can vary depending on the seeds. For example, are they all flower seeds or are some vegetables? Cool season vegetables can be started sooner than warm season vegetables, etc. We have lots of instructional articles on this website to help first timers like you so be sure to search our database for growing information. The propagator is like a mini greenhouse. Seeds are watered, then covered with plastic. Once the seedlings emerge, the plastic cover is removed.

Here are some to get you started:
