Q.Seed germination

Zone Crested Butte, Colorado. 9300ft a move sea level. Zone 3 | Gordon added on August 2, 2015 | Answered

I landed on your page searching for the best way to germinate seeds. Back in the dark ages when I was at school we used to use a paper towel or wet egg boxes. Your site is great. It wasn’t until I saw the side bar article on how to keep kangaroos out of the garden that I realised that I really don’t have a problem with kangaroos, but I do have deer coming into my garden and needlessly ravaging my hanging baskets.

Anyway, I guess whatever I’m doing is working with regard to the kangaroos. I also think it’s effective on other marsupials as we don’t get any of those either. Fabulous thing the internet. Keep up the good work. On a side note, I can recommend deer whistles on my truck to keep deer away from the road, they also work on rhino, elephants, etc., as I’ve never hit one of those on my way to town. The photo is of an Elephant Head (Pedicularis groenlandica ) growing next to Washington Gulch (stream), which is out my front door. If you look closely, you’ll see the individual florets are dead ringers for …..elephant heads!!
