March 4 column: Seed-starting
Here is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Starting with seeds. In it, I outline the basic details of seed-starting, which is a fun and economical way to grow many different kinds of veggies and flowers.
Recently, some readers have asked me to post guidelines on when to start seeds indoors. I started some artichoke seeds a few days ago (there will be more on that this week in case you’re curious about it) and will be starting tomato, eggplant, pepper and leek seeds within the next two weeks.
I will start bean and corn seeds indoors around May 1st and plan to start summer and winter squash seeds around May 7th. I’ll keep you posted on my seed-starting routine.
Here are some links to seed-starting fact sheets from the WSU Spokane County Master Gardeners that I think will be helpful to you:
